Comparative Literature | Modern Literature & The Other Arts
C255 | 1121 | Sarah Mote
*Satisfies COAS AHLA and Cultural requirement*
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.
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 required.
