How many great texts I'm going to be able to teach this semester. Vallejo, Neruda, Aleixandre, Lorca, Blanca Varela, Amalia Iglesias y Lola Velasco. Some Venezuelan stuff, maybe. María Auxiliadora! I don't know why I always do mostly male writers from the first half of the century and mostly female from the second half.

My colleague in Latin American poetry has come up with a similar course, but with a different roster of poets, so the graduating seniors who need this course have a choice between poetry ... and poetry.
