Primary Instructor:

In this course, students will read a selection of German-language tragedies and short stories from the long 19th century and examine them primarily in terms of the nebulous and elusive concept of “honor.” This notion of (masculine) honor, which played such a central role in German culture and society throughout the 19th century, will be examined in terms of the near-obligatory violence that literature often portrays it as causing. We will address the various manners in which honor is depicted by the texts we read, and will seek to establish not only the social cause of the violence as presented in the plotlines, but also attempt to ascertain the aesthetic aims of lethal duels, suicides, and infanticides from a dramatic or literary standpoint.

This course will be conducted in German.
