Humanities Open when gep_category = HUM
Each course in the Humanities category of the General Education Program will provide instruction and guidance that help students to:
 
 
Describe and compare the changing development of cultural styles, as presented and contrasted over time in various literary texts.
 
 
Exam question:

"Swift's character Lemuel Gulliver has seen a performance of Moliere's Tartuffe in London. He later tries to explain the theme of the play to his masters, the houyhnhnms (horses). Write a dialogue between Gulliver and his "master" that indicates the problems of understanding that might arise. Recall the cultural contrasts -- French/English, neo-classical/proto-Enlightenment, human/houyhnhnm."
 
 
Compare and contrast interpretive points of view in literature to identify the temporal and cultural differences in how people create their human world.
 
 
Literary essay:

In Chekhov's The Cherry Orchard, the two main characters, Lyuba and Peter, experience their situations very differently. Using specific examples from the play, demonstrate how this difference suggests that they live in different ages -- one looking backward to the past, one looking forward to the future. How does this difference determine their actions and lead to the conclusion. Do you judge the conclusion to be comic or tragic? Why?"
 
 
Evaluate a work of literature in terms of its artistic use of style, genre, character, and/or plot.
 
 
Literary essay:

How does the genre of the epistolary novel affect the power of the story in Goethe's Sorrows of the Young Werther? How would it be different, more or less emotionally striking if told as straight narrative? Use specific examples from the novel, and support your arguments by carefully defining your criteria for judgment.

Examine ideas, values, images, cultural artifacts, economic structures, technological or scientific developments, and/or attitudes of people as reflected in the literatures of England, France, Germany, and Russia.
 
 
Essay questions
Sample measure: Discuss the role of social class in The Cherry Orchard as a major cause of events. Compare this with the role of social class in another work we have read, either The Sorrows of Young Werther or Frankenstein. How does the difference affect the realism of the works?

Jonathan Swift has been asked to review Corneille's Le Cid. Write that review from his point of view as shown in Gulliver's Travels. The internet has a number of guides to reviewing plays, and they may be of use to you, but Swift is above all philosophical and individual. Use the texts for your arguments.

The Monster's tale in the middle of Frankenstein is the "heart" of the book (body). In it, he mentions that he had read (Goethe's) Werther. Write a discussion between the Monster and Victor Frankenstein about the lessons of that novel, with each using examples from his own life, as well as from Goethe's book.
 
Please complete at least 1 of the following student objectives.
 
Interpret and analyze issues raised in the course readings by arguing from different viewpoints that are expressed within the literatures of England, France, Germany, and Russia.
 
 
Essay questions

For example:

Varya, a character in Chekhov’s “The Cherry Orchard” (1904) has just read Freud’s “On Dreams” (1900) and tries to explain its ideas to her mother. They have a conversation about these ideas and try their own hand at applying them. Compose such a conversation. Use your imagination about the characters and their dreams.

Imagine… Elmire, Cléante, and Mme Pernelle attend a performance of Corneille’s Le Cid. During the carriage ride home, they discuss the play, its characters, and their decisions. Naturally they have differing opinions. Write their dialogue as if it were a scene from Molière’s Tartuffe. No verse, please.
