This course, required for all German majors, is a continuation of GER 301 in its thematic focus on the changing portrayal of love in German cultural narratives. Examining a variety of texts (fiction, essays, drama, poetry) from the Middle Ages to the Nineteenth Century, we will discuss the history, evolution, and understanding of romantic love. This writing-intensive course includes several assignments from plot summary to thematic exploration designed to engage a detailed literary analysis. Course materials will be drawn from a literary canon of Süße Pein and include texts by Frank Wedekind, Theodor Storm, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, and Gottfried Lessing, among others.
