UNCP 5565 Capstone:Moral of Story (Spring: 3 )


Course Description

Hanging in Boston's Museum of Fine Arts is the magna opus of Paul Gauguin, "Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going?". Gauguin left family, friends, and a career in banking to flee to Tahiti, in search of life's meaning. "Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going?" is his ultimate representation of these philosophical questions. We will move through a different artistic medium - that of the short story - as we ask those same questions. We will examine complex plots and characters in the hopes of exploring our own stories.
