Classic novels meeting the challenge of great literature
|Availability:||Available at 2 Libraries 2 of 2 copies|
More than a mere 'slice of life,' classic novels perform a sort of miracle, jolting readers to see the remarkable, often provocative truths that underlie the human condition. To experience these extraordinary novels is to ask deep and sometimes unsettling questions about life and the world. Join Arnold Weinstein for an epic journey, as viewers traverse three centuries, sojourn in foreign lands, and enter remarkable realms of the imagination.
Classic Novels is your invitation to the dazzling, surprizing, and deeply moving worlds revealed through these great works. In this course, you'll move beyond what is often offered in literarry coourses: plot synopses, anecdotes, and facts about where and when a novel was written. You will gain something greater and more profound: an opportunity to experience the starting brilliance that makes each of these works a classic.
