Class Description: 
This course provides an in-depth look at literary giants and the masterpieces of prose or poetry they have created; it’s an opportunity to see the role they played both within the context of their own time and within the larger span of literary history. These great authors confront key questions of modernity that continue to occupy us to this day; they ask the question of what it means to be human and explore fundamental human themes. They give us a fresh perspective on the past and on ourselves.
