|55-317 Women, Virtue and Honour in Spanish Drama (In English) F(3-0)|
This is a topic-oriented course which will study, in English, major Spanish dramas: seventeenth-century works such as Lope de Vega's Fuenteovejuna, Calderon's Life is a Dream, Tirso de Molina's Don Juan, and twentieth-century plays such as Garcia Forca's The House of Bernarda Alba and Blood Wedding. In addition to the thematic focus, these texts will be studied for their artistic merit and for the specificity of the Spanish "comedia". Where appropriate, this course will also discuss the influence of Spanish themes on the European culture. Students who select the course under the listing of 88-317 will do selected readings and assignments in Spanish.
