GERM 46.02 Kafka and Brecht: Alienation, Satire, and Revolt (in English)


Franz Kafka (1883-1924), the most influential prose writer of the 20th century, and BertoltBrecht (1898-1956), probably the most influential dramatist, both examine the alienated and un-heroic modern individual in her/his unhappy relationship to hostile social environments: dysfunctional families, impenetrable bureaucracies, heartless capitalist economies. Both use experimental techniques in form and content to shake their audiences out of their complacent worldviews and lazy habits of thought and feeling; both are darkly, mordantly, hilariously funny. Conducted in English. By special arrangement, this course can also be used to count toward a German Studies major or minor. Open to all classes. \f




Distributive and/or World Culture

Dist:LIT; WCult:W

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
