This course will provide students with a detailed elaboration of the main themes of contemporary philosophy of literature, with particular emphasis of existentialist, post structuralist, and Marxian approaches to Black novels of the twentieth century. The course is divided into two broad sections: 1) a cluster of readings designed to give students a detailed understanding of the philosophical issues associated with literary expression; 2) a series of group presentations on Suzette Mayr's novel The Sleeping Car Porter.
