ENG 227

(Also REL 227)

One of the many ways in which religion has influenced culture can be found in its relationship to the creation of literature. This course will examine how essential themes from Judaism and Christianity have found expression in 19th and 20th century literary masterpieces. Selected readings from Blake, Tolstoi, Dostoyevsky, Beckett, Kafka, and Camus will be used to illustrate the interrelation of religion and artistic expression as well as the dual role of the writer as critic and creator of culture.
