This course will concentrate on texts following the path of a person on his/her journey from alienation, loss, hardship, through a turning point. We will read stories of people who were caught in a major life crisis but who managed to keep a deep connection with themselves and the world: people who survived to share their experience with others. We will read three books and a play, as well as letters, book extracts, and Nobel Prize addresses in a coursepack. Some films will be discussed. The course will be discussion based.
