Masterworks of European Literature

Michael G. Wood

In this course we will examine the major forms and themes of European literature since the Renaissance, concentrating on drama, prose fiction and lyric poetry. Significant works originally written in English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish will be read (in English) for their intrinsic interest as well as for what they tell us about what a masterwork might be, and how the concept may change over time.
