Course Description
With sessions ranging from Gilgamesh and the Odyssey to Borges and Orhan Pamuk, this course explores how great writers refract their world and how their works are transformed when they intervene in the global cultural landscape. No national literature has ever grown up in isolation from the cultures around it; from the earliest periods, great works of literature have probed the tensions, conflicts, and connections among neighboring cultures and often more distant regions as well. Focusing particularly on works that take the experience of the wider world as their theme, this course will explore the varied artistic modes with which great writers have situated themselves in the world, helping us to understand the deep roots of today's intertwined global cultures.

What You'll Learn in the Course
The origins and history of World Literature
How literary works are transformed by cultural transmission
How to analyze literary works critically
The significance of major technological advances in writing

Det er alltid spennende å se hvordan man velger ut verker fra litteraturhistorien, både hva som kommer med og hva som ikke kommer med. Naturlig nok må en slik liste inneholde mange hull.
