LALW303 The Family Drama in Literature 3 cr.

An exploration of literature that portrays families, the complicated dynamics of family relationships, generational conflicts, and sibling rivalries. We will also examine the ways in which the microcosm of the family reflects its larger cultural and historical settings. The syllabus is culturally diverse and trans-historical, ranging from the story of David and Absalom in the Bible to Faulkner’s Absalom, Absalom!, with a variety of novels, plays and films along the way.

Prerequisites: LALW200
