"Language, Power, and Revolution in Mexican and Puerto Rican Classical Reception," Joshua Hartman, Bowdoin College
This talk introduces major figures within the history of Puerto Rican and Mexican receptions of Greek and (especially) Latin literature. Two case studies will focus on Neo-Latin poetry in Mexico and vernacular poetry in Puerto Rico. The first will comprise a longer investigation of a Neo-Latin epic from colonial Mexico, the Guadalupe of Jose Antonio Villerías (1695–1728), focused especially on how the poem negotiates issues of power and language through the use of Latin, Spanish, Nahuatl and the traditions of historical production associated with those languages. As a kind of epilogue, I will also preview a new project in Puerto Rican reception: an analysis of Luis Muñoz Rivera’s Mens Divinior (c. 1900), a Spanish poem that examines the vitality of the classical tradition in Latin America, including perspectives on “rejecting” words from the Spanish and Classical traditions.
