ENG 202 - World Literature II

Prerequisite: ENG 101 ENG 101E , or ENG 101P .  
(3 Credits)
This literary smorgasbord begins by challenging the social order of the French Enlightenment. Then we delve into Japanese puppet theatre, Brazilian realism, Indian and German romanticism, Czech and Argentinian surrealism, and modern diasporic pieces that defy geographical boundaries. Through written literary analysis and discussion, we will broaden and deepen our understanding of the human journey as conveyed through literature. This course represents a wide literary variety, beginning by subverting the supposedly rigid social order of the Enlightenment. Then we delve into: Japanese puppet theatre’s intensively human themes; Brazilian realism that forces gritty moral questions onto its lower-class protagonists; Indian and German romanticism riddled by psychoanalytical eruptions from the unconscious; Czech and Argentinian surrealism, and modern diasporic pieces that defy geographical boundaries. Through written literary analysis and discussion, we will broaden and deepen our understanding of the human journey as conveyed through literature. *Arts/Humanities Approved General Education Course.  Total of 45 hours of lecture.

Semesters Offered: Spring Only, Odd Years.
