Surrealism in Latin America and Spain (Poetry and Fiction)

Subject Code: 
ILAC
Course Number: 
254
Description: 

 

This course focuses on the legacy of Surrealism in the Hispanic transatlantic traditions, both in literature and the visual arts (film and paintings). We will study and analyze two aesthetic paths: on one hand, the embracing of Surrealism to enrich one's own poetics; on the other, that of other groups and authors' orthodox approach to the principles established by André Breton and his cohort in the aesthetic adventure. The course will study and assess Surrealism's lasting echoes in recent literary manifestations (among them Roberto Bolaño's works). Taught in Spanish.
