Course Description

The turn of the nineteenth to the twentieth century was a period marked by profound social changes which created anxieties, uncertainties and fear and led to an apocalyptic mood. Strong emotions like these were clearly mirrored in contemporary artistic life. Characterized by movements such as “decadence,” “l‘art pour l’art” or “expressionism,” the age produced some of the most prominent artists. They were dealing with the past through creating new forms of expression in literature, music and the arts. In this seminar we will turn primarily to English literature and the theatre. We will be exploring the works of authors who aspired to new artistic horizons: by breaking taboos, creating new narrative techniques such as the “stream of consciousness,” or offering new concepts of femininity by constructing new types of female figures like the “femme fatale.”
