Secrecy will be discussed in both ethical and practical frameworks. Students will begin to develop a personal ethic related to secrecy and will grapple with the intersection of secrets, lies and obfuscation.

PSYC 77N: Deviants in Literature

Many literary works are enhanced by, in fact demand, a psychological perspective to achieve a fully informed reading. In The Devils Dostoevsky uses the issues and process of anarchy as a platform on which to develop some of the most unforgettable characters in literary history. Death in Venice contains among its many themes the darker dynamic of paraphilia. Guilt searches for a validating crime in Kafka's The Penal Colony. Capote uses a journalistic style to manage horrible fact during In Cold Blood. Conrad shows that telling a story of the journey outward is more nearly an analysis of the journey inward in Heart of Darkness. Albee's Zoo Story asks whether the man on the street is prepared to confront his own worst nightmare. Close reading of works such as these presents opportunities to learn about character pathology and to expand traditional approaches to literary criticism by applying a psychological perspective.
