HISP 430 - Literature and Music of Heartbreak

FC ARHU CD
4 credits
There’s a Yiddish saying that there’s nothing more whole than a broken heart. Everyone experiences it, yet it’s singularly difficult to represent. We will explore heartbreak’s double-edge as a formal problem that is simultaneously existential. The seminar centers on close reading and active listening as complementary practices in many genres, while highlighting contemporary female-identified writers and composers. Works by Aridjis, Beyoncé, Bielawa, Blake, Borges, Cusk, Davis, García Márquez, Gulliksen, Ladin, Lispector, Lorca, Schubert, and more. Taught in English.

This course is cross-listed with CMPL-430
