After an overview of the history and Evolution of theater in Spain this course will examine and analyze closely four plays. The first three will be the widely considered masterpieces of the Golden Age: Lope de Vega's "Fuenteovejuna;" Tiros de Molina’s "The Trickster of Seville;" and Pedro Calderon de la Barca's "Life is a Dream.” The last play will consider an important post-Civil War work: Antonio Bueno de Vallejo's "In the Burning Darkness."
