During this term we will explore how love and passion are expressed in theater, poetry and short stories throughout the history of Spanish literature. We will start reading poetry by Garcilaso de la Vega, Quevedo, Bécquer, Neruda, Darío and many others, continue on to El burlador de Sevilla by Tirso de Molina, and finish with analyzing current love songs. This class is the second of a two-part sequence of courses that prepares students for the Advanced Placement exam in Spanish Literature and Culture, but students are not required to take both terms.
