The principal focus of this course is the Spanish “comedia” of the seventeenth century (with supplemental readings from prose and poetry) to provide us with a dynamic and critical understanding of the theme of love as constructed by the greatest dramatists and authors of the period. Works by Lope de Vega, Tirso de Molina, Calderón, San Juan de la Cruz, Santa Teresa, María de Zayas, and others will show us how the theme was treated from diverse perspectives, and how it related to the social and political context of the time. Conducted in Spanish.
