GERST 3330

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2019-2020.

Yes, it is true: most of German lit deals with the bleaker side of life but also (and because of it) presents us with marvelous examples of great humor, satire, jokes and comedy. From slap stick, political satire and biting gallows humor, this course will provide an overview of German humor in literature from the 18th century to contemporary texts, film, TV, blogs and comics. From Jean Paul to Loriot, from Goethe to Kafka, from Keller to Heinrich Böll, from Robert Walser to Sybille Berg. Texts and discussion in German.
