ENGL 332 Spring 2015 Images of Law

Cross Listed as COMP411, JLST401
Works of art transform how we view the law. Novels like Melville's Billy Budd, Kafka's The Trial and Camus' The Stranger produce indelible images that inspire sometimes haunting reflections about all phases of the legal process -- investigation, interrogation, arrest, trial, and punishment. Poems, films, and other art forms also offer perspectives on the law, raising issues richer and more elusive than what we encounter on Court TV, in the New York Times, or even from sophisticated legal scholars. This course probes works of art with the goal of gaining insight into various aspects of law.
