In this course we will devote ourselves to reading five of the most important poets of the Spanish Golden Age: Garcilaso de la Vega, Luis de Gongora, Fray Luis de Leon, Francisco Quevedo, and Lope de Vega. Our readings will allow us to immerse ourselves in a world that is both alien and familiar as these voices from the past speak to us across the centuries about all the big questions of life.
This class will be conducted in Spanish.
