    In this course, students will survey a fifty-year span of Spanish literature and culture known as the Silver Age. They will read and discuss texts from this period, centering on the figure of Federico Garcia Lorca, but including his immediate predecessors and contemporaries, as well as follow-up on his impact into the present day. Students will learn theoretical approaches that can be employed to further interpretation and analysis of these texts. Students will also learn the essential features of the socio-historical context surrounding these figures.
