SPLT 061 - (LT) Love, Romance, and Eroticism in Medieval and Early Modern Spain
This course focuses on literary texts written in Spain between circa 1050 and 1600 that depict the way love, romance, and eroticism were understood during this period in the Iberian Peninsula. It will also help understand how our contemporary ideas about love and erotic companionship are very much influenced by these medieval and early modern conceptions. The texts, which were originally written in the various romance languages spoken in Spain during the period, will be read and analyzed in English.
