    I Loved this CoursePerhaps the Best Course I've Ever HadI found this course more enjoyable and rewarding than any I've had in 8 years of higher education. Though that statement, I admit, may say something about the quality of my education, it probably has more to do with my maturity in the 20+ years since my last degree. Yet I think it has more to do with the superb professor, Dr. David Thorburn of MIT.What a wonderful set of lectures on modern literature, that has significantly transformed and improved my views and reading of modern literature. The professor is fantastic in his enthusiastic love for literature, art and artist/authors. I was sad after I couldn't find another set of lectures by Dr. Thorburn. I highly recommend this for those of us not graced with such a course or an education in creative arts.The Syllabus:Road Map—Modernism and Moral AmbiguityHow to Read Fiction—Joyce’s “An Encounter”Defining Modernism—Monet’s CathedralDefining Modernism—Beyond ImpressionismThe Man Who Would Be King—Imperial FoolsHeart of Darkness—Europe’s KurtzHeart of Darkness—The Drama of the Telling The Shadow-Line—Unheroic Heroes The Good Soldier—The Limits of IronyThe Good Soldier—Killed by Kindness Lawrence (and Joyce)—Sex in Modern Fiction“Horse Dealer’s Daughter”—A Shimmer WithinThe Metamorphosis—Uneasy DreamsDubliners—The Music of the OrdinaryUlysses—Joyce’s HomerUlysses—The Incongruity PrincipleTo the Lighthouse—Life Stand Still HereTo the Lighthouse—That Horrid Skull AgainIsaac Babel—Jew and CossackIsaac Babel—Odessa’s HomerFaulkner’s World—Our Frantic SteeplechaseAbsalom, Absalom!—The Fragile ThreadPale Fire—Modern or Postmodern?The Moral Vision of Modern Fiction

    My hopes for this course are through the roof...Lecture 1: Road Map: Modernism and Moral Ambiguity:CAPTAIN CARPENTER By John Crowe RansomCaptain Carpenter rose up in his primePut on his pistols and went riding outBut had got wellnigh nowhere at that timeTill he fell in with ladies in a rout.It was a pretty lady and all her trainThat played with him so sweetly but beforeAn hour she'd taken a sword with all her mainAnd twined him of his nose for evermore. Lecture 2: How To Read Fiction: Joyce's An Encounter (Dubliners): In which our educator fiercely disses A Reader's Guide to James JoyceLecture 3: Defining Modernism: Monet's Cathedral: RouenLecture 4: Defining Modernism: Beyond Impressionism: Mr Bennet and Mrs BrownLecture 5: The Man Who Would Be King: Imperial FoolsRudyard Kipling's White Mans Burden (1899) No wonder Kipling is so reviled nowadays.
