Brilliant Minds

Literary genius can take innumerable shapes and forms through novels, plays, or poetry. Brilliant minds use their gifts to entertain, inspire, engage, and enlighten us about philosophical and artistic concerns, social trappings, and human conceit. In this course, read examples of genius, including Aeschylus, The Persians; Elias Lönnrot, The Kalevala; Giovanni Boccaccio, The Decameron; William Shakespeare, Henry IV, Part 1; George Eliot, Silas Marner; John Steinbeck, East of Eden; Leslie Marmon Silko, Ceremony; and Kazuo Ishiguro, The Remains of the Day. Prior to the first session, students are encouraged to read The Persians by Aeschylus.
