Cíle předmětu
The course aims at an overview of the literary production in prose, poetry and drama of the twentieth century. This is only possible if we focus on important developments, streams, movements or changes of direction and sample them on some works of just a few out of the many writers active in the period. The seminars will consist of short introductory lectures and discussion of critical essays, short stories and poems. Participants will also be required to read three novels from the period by writers of their choice. Students will acquire survey knowledge of the period and develop skills of critical reading of literary texts.
