Instituto Cervantes at Harvard - FAS. Jonathan Mayhew: LORCA’S MODERNIST SELF-FASHIONING

Tuesday, October 13, 2015

The proposal is to read Lorca's self-creation as a literary artist from the perspective of the postmodern "death of the subject." The result will be to locate this questioning or dissolution of subjectivity in modernism itself (rather than in its later manifestations) and to re-situate Lorca in relation to his modernist contemporaries, like Kafka, Borges, and Pessoa. Prof. Mayhew’s approach presents a challenge to the biographical imperative of Lorca studies, which has prevented this wider view of how he fits into the literature of this period.
