While American literary history didn't begin in the 1850s in Concord, Massachusetts, it certainly blossomed there. This small town an hour west of Boston was home to a band of writers whose works still resonate with modern readers.

We'll also read a selection of each author's work in full.

The Jesuits labeled him “the devil’s partner in crime,” Frederick the Great of Prussia called him “a monster” who wished to destroy humanity, and his name appears frequently in the plays of Shakespeare in reference to nefarious and murderous characters. Vilified and demonized almost immediately after the publication of his book, the very name Machiavelli has divided readers and critics. This seminar will introduce students to the historical figure of Niccolò Machiavelli through an in-depth discussion of the intellectual, historical, and political contexts into which The Prince was published. We will introduce readers to the major themes of The Prince against the backdrop of the historical reality of the political and philosophical climate of 15th and 16th century Florence in the aim of unraveling the complex mystery and mythology surrounding this towering figure of Renaissance thought.

The Merchant of Venice, Oliver Twist and Trilby are English literary classics, which have stood the test of time. Each work’s lasting relevance is due, in large part, to the influence of its leading Jewish character. In fact, the characters have become so synonymous with their Jewishness, that their names are part of modern antiSemitic vernacular. In this class, we will study the portrayal of these characters – Shylock, Fagin and Svengali – while examining how and why numerous anti-Semitic tropes thrive and endure. More
