Description

Why is Petronius’s The Satyricon the only literary text mentioned by name in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby? Why do Nikolai Gogol and Lu Xun both have short stories titled “Diary of a Madman”? What do Homer and the Coen brothers have in common? All of these questions relate to literary influence, originality and artistic creativity. In this course we will take for our primary sources world literature and cinema, mapping and interrogating the role influence plays in their creation. Writing assignments will encourage students to explore how the idea of influence pertains to the artistic media that they find most consumes their interest. This can include, but is certainly not limited to: literature, film, painting, dance, music, video games, etc.
