H6842: A Clean Well-Lighted Place: Existentialist or Nihilist? in Splash Fall 2018 (Dec. 01 - 02, 2018)
This course examines Ernest Hemingway's short story, "A Clean Well-Lighted Place," from 1933. The tale will be the lens through which we explore greater questions of nihilism and existentialism. Upon first read, the story may seem overwhelmingly sad. We hope to push students beyond that initial barrier, and have a conversation about what gives us meaning in life.
