Great Books of East Asia: Classics of Love and War

Course #: ASIAN 155L

This class introduces students to some of the most famous works of literature in China, Japan, and Korea before 1900. The semester is divided into two parts: the first half examines poetry and fiction in which romances are centrally featured, and the second half looks at stories that present specific points of view about major wars, battles, and acts of violence. The course will provide a broad knowledge of premodern literature in East Asia, as well as of cultural and historical contexts that are relevant to the texts.

ASIAN 155L and MLLC 155L are the same course.
