HARUKI MURAKAMI: MAGICAL JAPAN
Lauren Grodstein, Department of English
Spring Break 2020
Class Meeting Times:
Japan is a country where the magical and the pedestrian seem to exist side by side, and no modern writer is better at capturing the country's vivid personality better than Haruki Murakami. During this ten day trip, we will use Murakami's work as a guide to his native country, visiting the university districts of Tokyo, the rural shrines of Takamatsu, and the palaces of Kyoto, where the writer was born. We'll also visit the chic port city of Kobe, whose destruction in the great earthquake of 1995 inspired Murakami's story collection "After the Quake." Students should prepare to eat delicious food, listen to great live jazz, see mesmerizing landmarks, and stroll through some of the most exhilarating cities in the world.
