Picasso and Hemingway: Art and Literature of the Spanish Civil War

The Spanish Civil War (1936-1939) represents a watershed event in Western history, marking the initial "call to arms" against fascism. In this course we will examine the masterpieces spawned by the Spanish Civil War and glean specific insights into the “story” of this war. Our subjects for study include Ernest Hemingway's For whom the Bell Tolls, the art and life of Pablo Picasso with emphasis on the painting Guernica, and Rafael Alberti's poetic collection Capital de la Gloria (to be read in translation.)
