Course Description

Are humans born naturally good, evil, neither, or all of the above? Does evil lurk deep within the heart of all that is good, or can the forces of good eradicate those of evil? Is evil an inextricable part of what it means to be human in the first place? We'll examine these and related questions by reading some especially provocative literature, including Frankenstein, Jekyll and Hyde, and works by Hawthorne, Poe, Flannery O'Connor, and Fitzgerald. We'll also view several relevant movies, including Young Frankenstein.
