What is a classic? What is contemporary? Where are we heading now? Extending from the Enlightenment and Age of Revolutions to the present, this course will focus on texts that have played a pivotal role in shaping our increasingly global understanding of World Literature. Exploring seminal works from the past and literature's enduring value in the 21st century, we will pay special attention to great short works that have had an outsized impact on the ways literature, culture, history, philosophy, language, economics, politics, and technology continue to intersect and evolve. Authors include Molière, Pope, Goethe, Blake, Wordsworth, Büchner, Poe, Dickinson, Whitman, Baudelaire, Marx, Nietzsche, Freud, Kafka, Woolf, Borges, Bolaño, Walcott, and Miranda.
