Description

East Meets West-Survey of Orientalism Part 1 ZOOM
The fascination of Western culture with the cultures of the Near and Far East has been a longstanding attraction – the Occidental and Oriental worlds almost having a Yin/Yang complementary relationship. In this course, we will examine some of the leading works of the Western Imagination that have tried to capture the wisdom, beauty, exoticism and eroticism of the Orient: the China of Marco Polo and Pearl Buck, the Japan of Puccini and Gilbert & Sullivan, the India of Rudyard Kipling and the Middle East of Sir Richard Burton’s 1001 Arabian Nights and Edward FitzGerald’s The Rubaiyat of Omar Kayaam. Instuctor: Michael Harris
