From Oedipus at the crossroads to Jesus on the cross, the fraught relationship of fathers and sons has been a foundational motif in the development of Western literature. In this course we will pursue the "father" in German drama, poetry, short stories, and film from the Enlightenment up to the present day, exploring the many and often intertwined levels — biological, political, legal, and religious — at which the figure of the father operates within various cultural representations. The language of instruction for this course will be German, and each meeting will offer group discussions as well as integrated grammar activities designed to help students improve/review their German within the intellectually vibrant context of a small seminar. Readings and screenings will include Lessing, Kleist, Freud, Kafka, Brecht, Dürrenmatt, and Wortmann.
