FDR: HL

Prerequisite: Completion of FW requirement.

It examines the concept of tragedy as a literary genre in the West, its evolution in history, and the aptness of its application to Chinese drama. Primary texts from Western and Chinese classical drama as well as from the modern period are selected as a basis for comparison, with a view to helping students form a comparative perspective in their appreciation of both Chinese and Western drama. Course activities include frequent discussions, writing assignments and projects of student performance, video screenings and a possible trip to either Washington DC or New York City to view a Chinese or Western play in performance. Fu. Planned Offering: When departmental resources are available.
