CMPL 230 - Introduction to Literature and the Visual Arts

FC ARHU CD WINT
4 credits
In this course we will study the relationships between literature and the visual arts. When, why, and how do writers incorporate art objects such as paintings, statues, and photographs into their works? To understand these visual-verbal transactions we will read theoretical texts on ekphrasis, ways of seeing, visual pleasure, framing, and the gaze. Literary texts will be drawn from different traditions and genres, while artworks from the Oberlin art museum will provide our visual sources.
