- Course Description
Modern Catalan literature constitutes an extraordinary cultural event that, for multiple reasons, has remained marginal amidst the great European literary traditions. Catalan literature and language have played a central role in the political re-emergence of Catalonia as “a nation without a state.” Given these historical conditions, the Catalan literary tradition is a particularly productive space to explore the always-puzzling relations between literature and politics.
The course will survey the panorama of Catalan literature from the nineteenth century to the present, with particular emphasis on contemporary literature. Readings will exemplify all important periods (Renaixença, modernisme, noucentisme, avantguarda, postguerra, postmodernitat) and will include novels, short stories, poetry and plays.
The course will be taught in Catalan. Students who have not taken Catalan should seek the consent of the instructor. This course can fulfill the elective 300/400 level requirement for the Spanish major.
Note: This class meets with HISP-X491, C450, C550.
