Metaphors of Modern Theatre

FREN-UA.0115, FREN-UA.0163 OR PLACEMENT TEST SAME AS DRLIT-UA.0267.

A close reading of the classics of contemporary theatre, with emphasis on their use of vivid metaphors of the human condition and the theatre as metaphor and artistic process. Analyzes plays in detail, thematically and stylistically. Views each play as a highlight of nonrealistic theatre and as a brilliant example of the sensibilities of European artists and thinkers in the period beginning just after World War I (Pirandello) to World War II (Sartre) and the postwar period, the post-Hiroshima generation (Beckett).
