ENGL 375 - Realism: Mirror Up to Nature

FC ARHU WADV
4 credits
Realism, though not the radical project it was, remains a significant part of contemporary culture. The tension between accurate reproduction of ‘reality’ and the creation of meaningful aesthetic form gives Realism its dynamic quality. Realism negotiates between the possibilities and limitations of representation in media such as the novel, drama, painting, photography, cinema, and television. The course will explore what realism was and its legacy, drawing from American, British, Irish, French, Italian, and Russian traditions.
Prerequisites & Notes: ENGL 299 or two 200-Level courses. Also acceptable: CINE 111 and a Cinematic Traditions Course, CINE 299, CMPL 200, or ENGL 275. Requirements can be waived with instructor consent.
