CLAS419B

The Classical Tradition; The Classical Tradition in Spain and Latin America

A survey of the reception of Classical literature in the Spanish-speaking world, with a particular focus on ancient drama. We read select literary works in translation, ranging from Renaissance Spain to contemporary Latin America, side-by-side with their classical models, to examine what is culturally unique about their choice of authors, themes, and adaptation of the material. Students have the option of reading some works in the original.
