LITE-3300B Modernism

This course will study the reformist Latin American current of the Spanish Language that emerged in the late 19th Century, known as Modernism, within the context of the growth of Latin American cities, the signs of uncertainly, loss of faith and the collapse of the burgess social order. Aware of the autonomy of art, Modernist writers aesthetically express the human and social contradictions of this crisis. In order to understand these phenomena, the course will study the narrative, essay and poetic genre of the first modernist generation (Jose A. Silva, Julian del Casal, Ruben Dario and Jose Marti), and make a transition to vanguard poetry through Lopez Velarde and Leopoldo Lugones.
