COMPLIT 122: Literature as Performance: (DLCL 142)

The course re-embeds great dramatic texts in history, theory, and philosophy of performance. We counterpoint Plato's Symposium on Eros with the performative tradition of the Persian love lyric, and continue to develop fruitful comparisons across a range of international works and thinkers. Course incorporates two live TAPS and Shakes productions, audiovisual works and films, and students' own creative ventures.

COMPLIT 122A: Radical Poetry: The Avant-garde in Latin America and Spain (ILAC 122A)

The first few decades of the 20th century ushered in a dynamic literary and aesthetic renewal in Spain and Latin America. Young poets sought a radical change in response to a rapidly changing world, one marked by the horrors of World War I and the rise of a new technological urban society. This course will focus on the poetry and attendant manifestos of movements such as Creacionismo, Ultraismo, Estridentismo, Surrealismo and other -ismos. How did the European avant-garde (e.g. Futurism, Dada, and Surrealism) inform such aesthetic turns? In what ways did poetry assimilate modern visual culture while questioning established poetics? Authors may include Aleixandre, Borges, Cansino-Assens, G. Diego, G. de Torre, Huidobro, Larrea, Lorca, Maples Arce, Neruda, Tablada, and Vallejo. Taught in Spanish.
