SPAN 162 - (LT) Spanish Golden Age Theater

Semester Hours: 3
Periodically
Dramatic and performance theories and praxis, theatrical development, techniques, and the evolution of dramatic literature in 16th and 17th-century Spain. A cultural, historical, and literary background provides the framework for close textual readings. In addition to studying the development of farce with Lope de Rueda’s “pasos” and Cervantes’ “entremeses,” selected works are covered from the pre-Lope playwrights such as Juan del Encina and Gil Vicente, among others, through Lope de Vega and his followers-mainly Tirso de Molina and Ruíz de Alarcon, culminating in the baroque theater of Calderon and the “auto sacramental.”
