Chinese Description
在西方,「傳奇」不像其他的文類般受到認定和推崇,很難將它定位歸類,有點像是古典文類的小跟班。傳奇既沒有悲劇史詩的莊嚴崇高,也沒有抒情詩的優美,更沒有喜劇的逗趣嗆人。但是它卻以通俗文類一脈流傳,一直到二十一世紀。傳奇始於中古世紀,後來並沒有發展成自成一格的文類,反而在寫作和思想上超越了原本的形式,形成了特殊的風格。我們可以說,傳奇入侵其他傳統文類,與之結合,然後重新塑形,因而變化多端,成為現代西方文化中一股無所不在的強大力量。本課程將回顧傳奇的發展史,從中古時期獨樹一格的文類,到了現代發展成具有哲學和詮釋特質的一種形式。我們的重點將探討這之間的變化如何發生? 並研究為何傳奇在西方歷史中歷久不衰,甚至成為我們理解現代西方思想及特色的一扇重要窗口。
英文概述
English Description
In the West, romance has often seemed to win less acclaim than other genres, a strange younger sister to the celebrated classical forms, not quite as sublime as epic tragedy, not as beautiful as lyric, not as provocative as comedy. Yet it has nonetheless endured as a popular form into the 21st century. Evolving since the Middle Ages to become less a genre in its own right than a transcendent mode of writing and of thought which invades, combines, and reshapes the other traditional genres, romance's protean nature has made it an omnipresent and influential force in modern Western culture. This course will trace the development of romance as a genre and as a philosophical and interpretive mode from the Middle Ages to the present, as we ask how it has changed and why it has persisted throughout Western history, becoming essential to our understanding of thought and of character in the modern West.
