C255 Modern Literature and the Other Arts

This course takes us into the creative mind of the artist and into the
analytical mind of the critic.  In C255, we analyze works of art of the
18th, 19th, and 20th centuries, exploring such topics as "The City" and
"Visions of Reality," and compare how these works interrelate as well as
discover how they are unique.  Students of C255 see, hear, and comprehend
literary and visual art in new, exciting, and discriminating ways.  By the
end of the course, the student--through her or his own secured powers of
discernment, increased confidence, and strengthened abilities of
perception--will determine what constitutes a work of art.  Visits to the
IU Art Museum, as well as possible architecture "trips," will be included
in the course.  Three of four shorter papers and one longer comparative
paper will be assigned.

No prerequisites and no previous experience in literature or other arts is
