This class is designed for people interested in modern literature, film, music and the visual arts, and who want to explore connections between works of art and their own life issues. Both parts of this dialogue are equally important, and can elicit deeper meanings from the works and our own lives. This spring, we’ll do an in-depth reading of Franz Kafka’s The Trial. This enigmatic novel interweaves theological, psychological and political symbolism. We’ll work with all these dimensions, and try to connect them to our own searches for meaning.
