LT 444 - Cervantes and His Time

This course aims to introduce students to the complex and rich literary, aesthetic, philosophical and even political landscape of seventeenth-century Spain, through its most outstanding figure, Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra. A writer who, universally known by Don Quixote, brings together in his controversial biography some of the most specific contradictions of the period he lived in, halfway between the blinding imperialist political Austrians and the dark situation of a country too busy in their expansionist inflows. Therefore, Cervantes and his time is intended as an interdisciplinary course in which, from the most important creations of the author, they will be giving way to artistic samples outside but complementary to their literature: painting, music and history of thought.
