GERM 64.01 Lit of the Modern Period: Franz Kafka and the Modern Self"

Kafka’s stories are the epitome of modern tragicomedy. In few other writers do we find despair and hope, guilt and redemption, dream and reality, in such close proximity. Kafka expresses the struggles of the modern self through the labyrinth-like character of his prose, through which we as readers must find a path. The course will read Kafka closely -  with attention to questions of authority, law, and self-fulfillment - and develop strategies of literary criticism and interpretation.

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.
