This course is designed to be a continuation of GTBOOKS 192 for Honors sophomores primarily, and deals with books from the Renaissance to the present. GTBOOKS 192 dealt thematically with the integration of the individual into larger institutions and traditions, and the sequel, GTBOOKS 291, will deal with the subsequent resistance, repudiation, and withdrawal from such traditional communities. There will be two lectures and two recitations each week.

The texts will be:

  • Cervantes, Don Quixote;
  • Goethe, Faust;
  • Dostoevsky, Crime and Punishment;
  • Flaubert, Madame Bovary; and
  • Twain, Huckleberry Finn.

Non-honor students and Honors first-year students need permission of the Great Books Director.
