SPAN 6651 Exile in Medieval and 20th Century Spanish Literature (Spring: 3 )


Course Description

A narration of exile, the eleventh century Cantar de mo Cid, is a foundational work in the Spanish literary canon, and exile is a structuring principle in a vast corpus of significant Spanish texts from the Middle Ages to today. In this course students read several narratives either about exile or by exiled writers, and in the process study important intersections of history and literature, in a sense drawing a geographical and ideological map of the exilic text.
