Hmm, to be honest with you, you have to realize that we’ll be watching videos of performances, and maybe if we can swing it,
even watch a live performances and those won’t necessarily be in translation.
Also, texts, texts are sometimes available in translation, but even then some references will be to the original,
I’d hope you’d be fairly confident in reading.
Hmm, to be honest, it sounds totally over my head.
You know what? I believe they’ll be offering a survey course on Polish literature.
Let me check here, yes, I thought it was being offered this time,
Professor Jowaski is teaching it, let’s see...it covers the major works, you know, epic romantic poetry, the novels, and it does cover one or two plays.
And this is in English?
Yes, you’ll be reading mostly English translations and the discussions will be in English.
Hmm, novels and poetry.
They’ll provide you with a great historical context for the plays.
So when you do get to them, you’re gonna really have a feel for the times they lived in, so to speak,
plus this course might also give you the impetus to learn more Polish, you know, get it to the level where you’d be ready for other class.Hmm.
