EN 365 - Special Studies in Jewish Literature


Credits: 3
Topics, genres, traditions, and authors selected from the wide range of Jewish literature both in English and in other languages (studied here in translation). Special attention to the interaction of history, culture, and literature in a variety of forms, such as folktale, novel, journal, and memoir. Depending on the focus in a given semester, students may encounter, for instance, the wild, beautiful, tragicomic ghost of a literature that haunts the Western canon at every turn, or the vital and indispensable contributions of Jews specifically to American literature.
Prerequisites: completion of the Introductory Requirement.
