SPAN 059. Romper las reglas: la transgresión en la temprana modernidad

The early modern period in Spain is one marked by the construction of political borders, geographical boundaries, social identities and linguistic and cultural norms.  However, there is also a strong countercurrent of transgression, rule-breaking and even rebellion.  Through readings of medieval epic and lyric poetry, the crónicasof discovery, and Golden Age drama, poetry and narrative, this course will explore the ways in which literature worked against the grain in early modern Spain in order to critique or undermine dominant power structures and ideology.
