教育目標

This Seminar is designed to give the student knowledge about the major trends in the 20th Century vis-à-vis the major writings of D.H. Lawrence. The 20th Century heralded many new concepts in the history of ideas, particularly in the fields of science, social-anthropology, and medicine and these ides were adapted into the writing of novels. Although D.H. Lawrence claimed that he never read Freud, his novels are very Freudian in nature and this is interesting and informative about the changes in the way the novel was to develop further in the century. While reading the selected novels, we will explore the developments of the 20th century.

課程概述

This course is intended for students who have an interest in the literature of the Twentieth Century with particular reference to studies in Fiction writing and psychological criticism stemming from the introduction to clinical psychology by Sigmund Freud, Carl G. Jung, Erich Neumann, Alfred Adler, et al. The core content of the course will be somewhat limited to the intensive study of three novels by D.H. Lawrence along with the background material of the main psychological movements and the criticism that developed in its wake. An attempt will be made to view the subject in as broad a perspective as possible taking into account the major critical movements of the 20th Century.
