What is the nature of our relationship to others and the world? How can literature help us see these relationships more clearly? This course seeks to explore such questions through adventurous readings of ten great works of narrative fiction from the 18th to the 20th century.

Excellent lectures and discussion. Choice of reading however was a bit too oriented toward anguish and violence.

I took this class earlier this year as my second (at the time) experience of a MOOC (which then swiftly became concurrent with my third experience--I'm since on my 5th this year). I have to say that this was an absolutely brilliant course--the choice of texts is wide-ranging and interesting, including some that--even as a literature MA--I'd never read. And the quality of the lectures is outstanding--humane, intelligent, stimulating. I can't recommend this course highly enough (though I have been trying to do so to anyone who will listen!). If Prof Weinstein were to be offering another MOOC, I'd jump at the opportunity to take it.

Terrc course with amazing Prof. Arnold Weinstein of Brown, famous writer and critic of numerous books, including "A Scream Goes Through the House: What Literature Teaches Us About Life." Literature masterpieces of Brontë, Prévost, Kafka, Woolf, Faulkner, Morrison, Coetzee, Melville were rediscovered, rethought, and retaught ingeniously. It was a journey of discovering truth about selves and others.

Although I wasn't aiming for the certificate I really ejoyed the whole package: the reading list, discussions, and lectures were really really good.
