GERM-276 Persistence of Evil: German Novella
Fall for 2015-2016
  • Murphy, G
  • The aim of this course is to study and contrast the curiously different realizations of the storytellers of the German Novella concerning the persistence of evil -- evil’s origins, its manner of extending itself, its disguises in both shocking and everyday forms, above all, its haunting ability, whether concealed or overt, to remain. Through a mixture of close reading and contemplative imaging of the narratives of the novellas, students will explore the poetic insights of this unique and highly appealing genre and its continuing and mysterious appropriateness for expressing the persistence of evil.
