ENGL 6370 - Chinese Lit in Translation


Chinese literature extends back thousands of years. This course, instead of a survey of Chinese literature, is designed to study a selection of Chinese literary masterpieces (prose, poetry, and drama) from different periods. Students will read these works in relation to their historical and social contexts, explore their meanings and ideas, analyze their artistic techniques, and discuss how they reflect a particular time and place and what they mean to us today. Topics may include family and tradition, individual and society, past and present, man and nature, the change of cultural and social values, and women’s role in society. This course emphasizes interactive learning. The instructor will encourage students to raise questions, broaden their perspectives, and become self-aware through their reading activities.
