What should I do? How should I live? How can I be a good person? How can I be happy? Can I be both at the same time? In this course, we will investigate how imaginative literature, in particular narrative forms, explore these questions and attempt some answers. We will examine how specifically literary forms and features—as opposed to philosophical or scientific ones—help us think about morals, ethics, and human happiness.
