Class description

"La Musa Democrática: Poesía y Posmodernidad en España, 1975-2012." We'll look at the vast number of poetic tendencies that arose in the decade following the death of Franco, and their consolidation in the 90s into two bitterly opposed poéticas: Poesía de la Experiencia, on the one hand, and La Poética del Silencio, o del Conocimiento, on the other. We'll also study the emergence of women poets and poetry in the 80s. All this within the context of Modernism and Postmodernism.
