The course entails careful reading and comparison of a variety of short stories written in the 1920s by the American writer Ernest Hemingway with other literary works that were written in the 18th century by non-American writers, like the French writer Stendhal, the Russian novelist Turgenev, and the English playwright and poet William Shakespeare. The writers James Joyce and T.S. Eliot are also covered and some of their works are required reading. In addition, students will think critically about how artists from different fields in the 1920s and beyond influenced each other through detailed analysis and comparison of movies, animation, and painters such as C├ęzanne and Picasso.
