LITERATURE

LIT-242
Chinese Literature and Society (3)

Course Level: Undergraduate

Offered as part of the AU Abroad Beijing program. Born as part of an iconoclast revolt against traditional culture, modern Chinese literature has a dual mission of enlightenment and national salvation. Through reading literary works of major Chinese writers, students examine the ingenuity of modern Chinese literature, gain a view of modern Chinese history, and gain an understanding of the Chinese conception of the evolving relationship between literature, politics, and society.
