SPAN 6627 Passion at Play (Fall: 3 )
In this course, students interrogate the relationship between love and passion, using early modern theater and love poetry as tools. The themes uniting the dramas examined will be love, honor, and death, with particular attention paid to those works in which violence is represented. What would lead a society to sanction such violent behavior in the name of love? To what extent is that definition still ingrained in Hispanic culture and in our own culture today?
