205. Material Resources in the Medieval and Renaissance Culture. (4). (HU).
The course will consist of a commentary on three French and two Spanish epic songs. Our approach will be twofold. On one hand, we will do a close reading of the texts, with an eye to what is distinctive about each one. But on the other, and at the same time, we will focus attention on the code common to all of them, the rules and norms that define the genre. Two of our poems are recognized masterpieces of world literature, the Song of Roland and the Poem of the Cid. Texts in translation will be ordered, but students who wish may read them in the original languages. (Fraker)
