Course Description

This course provides an overview of the evolution of Spanish drama, from the late 18th century to the present. We will combine stylistic and semiotic analysis of the texts with a literary-historical perspective as we look at outstanding examples of neoclassic, romantic, realist, avant-garde, poetic, contemporary, and postmodern pieces. Thus the course lends itself to a better understanding of how aesthetic tendencies in general have evolved over the centuries at the same time that it provides material for contrastive studies of a specific genre: drama.
