W.G. Sebald





Close study of Sebald’s narrative and poetic works, as well as a selection of his scholarly essays, against the backdrop of recent literary theory. One emphasis in this semester's seminar was on questions of narrative, but of course Sebald's works are so rich that it's impossible to limit any course on him to a single focus. We spent a little more time than in previous Sebald seminars on Die Ringe des Saturn, which proved to be very rewarding.
