PLOTS IN TIME

PLOTS IN TIME

Monday, December 10, 2018 - 10:30am
Location: 
1201 International Affairs Building

Faust, Don Juan, The Prodigal Son, Cupid and Psyche, Prometheus—these were some of Alexander Veselovsky’s favorite examples of plots which have been continually “renewed” over time.

This Symposium takes up the challenge of Veselovsky’s Historical Poetics, asking: What is a plot? What does it mean to say that the ‘same’ plot reappears in different narratives? What values are carried with a plot as it is repurposed by an author?
