Course Title:Western World Literature from the Early Modern Period to the Present
A selection of the most influential literary works produced in the Western world from ancient to modern times (Renaissance). Special emphasis will be placed on literary productions from the continental European, Anglo-American, and Latin-American traditions, as well as on the relevance of these texts, whether old or new, to contemporary society around the world and on the complex transactions between literary and socio-political discourse. We shall highlight the ability of prominent literary works to challenge the social status quo and propose new models for ethical and social transformation, thereby remaining highly relevant to the present global circumstance and our daily lives.
