  • Overview

    Federico García Lorca and Ernest Hemingway are two of the most internationally recognized literary and cultural figures of the 20th century. That is, not only are they viewed with great interest and even division and controversy in their birth countries of Spain and the United States respectively, but they continue to cast a long shadow across the globe and especially over the Atlantic. Furthermore, not only did each of these two compelling figures leave a deep footprint in the other´s country, but they were also influenced and greatly inspired by the socio-cultural patrimony of the other´s homeland. By studying and analyzing Lorca in America and Hemingway in Spain students will explore an inter-cultural journey that reaches the core of how many Spaniards view America and how many Americans view Spain to this day. In this course we will engage, explore and envision Lorca in America and Hemingway in Spain within the enriching comparative context regarding a number of points of analysis: socio-cultural identity and customs, the environment, ethnicity, sexual identity, religion, geography, the artistic merit versus the ethical complexities of the bullfight, human rights and the cruelties of warfare.
