The 19th Century [electronic resource]: Romanticism and Realism

Films for the Humanities & Sciences
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Despite the political and economic chaos of the 19th century-or perhaps because of it-this period produced brilliant literature while setting the stage for the Generation of '98. In this program, respected authorities elaborate on the lives and works of the masters of Romanticism and Realism. Dramatic readings include excerpts from Jose Espronceda's Cancion del Pirata, Jose Zorrilla's Romances Historicos, and Gustavo Adolfo Becquer's Rimas as well as from the writings of the Duque de Rivas, Rosalia de Castro, Leopoldo "Clarin" Alas, and Benito Perez Galdos.
