DELC 213: The Writer and the Text in 20th Century World Literature

This course explores a range of texts written in a range of languages and genres, to explore the engagement of writers with their role in different social, political and historical contexts. Lectures will provide an introduction to the genre being studied and address the question of the role of the writer in the context of world literatures.
