Dr. Jekyll vs. Dr. Frankenstein: Doubles in Literature

RUSS 222
Spring 2017 not offered
Crosslisting: REES 222, RULE 222
Certificates: Writing

We will trace the evolution of the idea of the literary double from its origins in German Romanticism, observing the degradation of the opposition between ideal and real into the struggle of good versus evil. The entire process is parodied in Nabokov's LOLITA.
