Knowledge of the Spanish-speaking modern poetry of Latin America; knowledge of important authors, works and currents; skills for the interpretation of poetry in general; insights in the theory of poetry

The seminar looks into the Spanish-speaking modern poetry of Latin America. We will look at the epoch of modernity in the Spanish-speaking regions of the American continent, as well as the second half of the 20th century and a few examples of contemporary Latin American poetry. We will analyse poems by J.L. Borges as well as those by César Vallejo, Pablo Neruda, Juan Gelman and Alejandra Pizarnik. We will discuss poems by Octavio Paz as well as by Oliverio Girondo, Alfonsina Storni and Sergio Raimondi. What are the connections between the different authors? Which themes, forms and metaphors return? As introduction, we will read texts on theory of poetry and talk about different kinds of interpreting a poem.
