Interdisciplinary Learning CoursesSpanish poetry

A century of poetry in Spain, poets that have given name to subway stations, modernity, postmodernity and liquid society, lineages and poetic expression, social networks and poets.

Playing with time -one hundred years of Spanish poetry- crossing it in various directions and seeing what happens, what happens within us, what we experience from the poem when reading and connecting to it; playing with poetic texts and trying to understand an era, a propensity, an impulse, a poetic voice; taking remnants of expression, of poets, of our emotion, and drawing a tree of relationships, of knowledge, of deep and more precise cultivation. Finding the footprint that the poem leaves upon us, when delving into the poem.
