Reworkings of Góngora's verse enabled in the seventeenth and twentieth centuries the construction of a Latin American place of enunciation, a narrative of Latin American origins and futures, and negotiations of identities and voices across boundaries of locale, gender, class, race, and ideology. We will debate the meanings of Gongorine poetics, "Barroco de Indias," "expresión americana," "neobarroco" and "neobarroso." Readings include poetry and poetics by Góngora, Domínguez Camargo, Valverde, Espinosa Medrano, Valle Caviedes, Sor Juana, Lezama, Gorostiza, Perlongher, and the landmark Medusario; and essays by Picón-Salas, Henríquez Ureña, Paz, Lezama, Sarduy, Rama, Beverley, Moraña, and Chiampi, among others.
