The Spanish Civil War: Art and History    NEW!

The Spanish Civil War (1936-1939) represents a watershed event in Western history, marking the initial "call to arms" against fascism. We will examine this war within the context of Spain's national history and within that of the tensions leading to World War II. Moreover, we will glean specific insights into the "story" of this war by studying several artistic masterpieces. We will read Ernest Hemingway's For Whom the Bell Tolls as well as a translation of Rafael Albert's poetic collection Capital de la Gloria and study the art and life of Pablo Picasso with emphasis on his painting Guernica. NOTE: Suggested reading: Hemingway, a history of the Spanish Civil War
