Japanese Expressions

Course No. HCS 328  Credits: 3.0
Faculty Allen Zimmerman

This course is an introduction to the culture of Japan as it is revealed in the Japanese literary and religious tradition and in modern literary and cinematic expression. Readings will include selections from early Japanese myth and poetry, the diary and early novel forms, and the literary and aesthetic response to influence from China. Appropriate attention will be paid to Noh drama and haiku poetry, writings in the samurai tradition, a modern novel and a Japanese film. The purpose of this course is not to survey the whole of the Japanese experience, but rather to read and view representative examples of Japanese expression with understanding and delight. May be applied as Creative Writing Concentration course.
