About this course:

This course is a continuation of the reading and discussion of 32 short stories by an equal number of writers in the classic collection of stories The Art of the Tale: An International Anthology of Short Stories, edited by the distinguished editor/poet/publishing executive Daniel Halpern. Included are familiar names such as Kundera, García Márquez, Oates, and Greene and some not so familiar: Landolfi, Narayan, Hildesheimer, and Mrabet. Themes include modernity vs. tradition, alienation, feminism, post-colonial identity, political displacement, exile, racism, immigration, sexual awakening, and others. The instructor provides a series of suggested study questions for each week’s readings a week beforehand; he also shares his PowerPoint presentations with students after all the week’s stories have been discussed. We will have an early lunch on the last day of class at a nearby local restaurant selected by students to allow mixing and networking in a non-classroom atmosphere.
