Foundational Women Poets from South America

Margara Russotto (Section 01)


This course focuses on some of the most representative women poets from Latin America, including Spanish America, the Caribbean, and Brazil. Canonical authors studied include Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz (México), Salomé Ureña (República Dominicana), Gabriela Mistral (Chile), Dulce María Loynaz (Cuba), as well as Cecília Meireles, Hilda Hist, and Adélia Prado from Brazil. We will explore why their poetic works are considered “foundational and representative” and study the authors’ historical and aesthetic motivations through reading, analysis and discussion. Conducted in Spanish. Seminar, with oral presentations and a longer research paper required.
