Course Description: 

The purpose of this course is to present a variety of narrative genres and to discuss and illustrate the modes whereby they can be analyzed.  We will be looking at shorter types of narrative: short stories, novellas, and fables, and also some extracts from longer works such as autobiographies.  While some works will come from the Anglo-American tradition, a larger number will be selected from European and non-western cultural traditions and from earlier time periods.  The course will thus offer ample opportunity for the exploration of the translation of cultural values in a comparative perspective.
