ENHN 563/463 International Currents in Modern Fiction (Humanities Elective)

(Second semester—even years/3 credits) 

A consideration of recent fiction that transcends boundaries of nation and language; such literary internationalism raises concerns of ethnicity, religion and political allegiance. How does a novelist modulate from local concerns to a global readership? From Africa we may read Chinua Achebe and Nadine Gordimer; from the Arab world, Tayeb Salih; from the Far East, Shusaku Endo; from Europe, Italo Calvino; from Latin America, Gabriand from “America,” Vladimir Nabokov.
