The operative word here is “arguably.”

Read the books, discuss their meaning and message, and, of course, argue their merits (or demerits). Books include Franz Kafka’s The Castle, Primo Levi’s The Periodic Table, Richard Wright’s Native Son, David Markson’s Wittgenstein’s Mistress and Ernest Hemingway’s The Sun Also Rises.

Please read The Castle for the first class.

Class meets: Tue, Feb 7, Mar 7, Apr 4, May 2 and Jun 6.
