Founded by Viking invaders, ruled by Norman and English conquerors, embattled and finally liberated by Irish and Anglo-Irish rebels, Dublin is one of Europe's most historic urban centers. For over a thousand years the city has been the home of insurgent genius, the battleground of political and literary cultures in conflict, and the inspiration for visionary idealism. And for the last two decades it has been one of the most vibrant, entertaining cities in the world. We will encounter the city's history in its great literature and museums; we will engage the city's living traditions--its music, theater, and politics--on a daily basis; and we will explore the energetic street life of its urban center and the spectacular shoreline and mountains to the north and south. The group will stay in shared apartments in the prestigious Trinity College, founded in 1592. English 250, Literary Dublin: One of the most important literary cities of the Western tradition for much of its thousand-year history, Dublin has produced great books and great writers out of all proportion to its size and political prominence. Dublin writers have authored masterpieces in every genre, from Swift's satires to Synges's ground-breaking plays to the three pillars of literary modernism: Yeats's poetry, Joyce's fiction, and O'Casey's drama. We will visit the sites of seminal works, such as St. Patrick's Cathedral, where Swift was Dean, Joyce's tower in Sandycove, and the famous Abbey and Gate Theatres. There will be midterm and a final exams and a short paper. English 300, Introduction to Creative Writing: The course investigates the process and practice of creative writing in the major literary genres, i.e., fiction, poetry, and non-fiction, and students will create texts in each genre. Regular readings will provide examples and critical vocabulary, students' creative work will be read and discussed in workshop format, and student writers will meet regularly with the instructor to discuss the principles of writing literary texts, assure creative output, and consider editing and revision options.
