About this course

Based on the second half of the Masterpieces of World Literature edX MOOC, this short literature course examines how writers reach beyond national and linguistic boundaries as worldly readers and travellers, and how their modern fictions rise to the status of world literature.

These masterpieces of modern world literature take part in a tradition of weaving small stories into ambitious projects—one that reaches back to medieval tales and extends forward to contemporary novels. Throughout the course, you will learn how these writers use their fiction to engage directly with the political and social concerns of their present and of globalized modernity, relating experiences of exploration, migration, international conflict, and cultural exchange.

What you’ll learn

  • The recent history of World Literature
  • How literary works are transformed by cultural transmission
  • How to critically analyze literary works
  • The historical and political context in China, Argentina, Turkey, and more
