Description
This course examines the literary representations of the Plague in a variety of novels, and it is intended as a companion course to "Black Death: Plague and History." Combined, these courses strive to explain the many effects this pandemic had, and continues to have, on humanity's endeavors over the last six centuries. Individually, this course investigates how authors have used this epidemic as setting for works of fiction, ranging from Historical and Philosophical to outright Science Fiction. Throughout the course, we will explore how the Plague has become a powerful metaphor for civilization's most distressing circumstances.
