Life into Art: Joyce, Woolf, Nabokov
RUSS 232
Fall 2016
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: REES 232, RULE 232

James Joyce in Dublin, Virginia Woolf in London, and Vladimir Nabokov in Petersburg vividly evoke place as key to both their biography and their artistic creation. As they transform aspects of their lives into their fictional universes, they deliberately blur the boundary between memoir and fiction, while literary works turn out to be as formative of creative consciousness as major historical events. Students will analyze these great modernists' modes of transforming "life" into art throughout the semester, and then put them into practice in writing a short story of their own.
