In this week's episode of BiblioFiles, the CenterForLit gang focuses their conversation on a term that comes up quite a bit in literary criticism: mimesis. What is mimesis? Should it influence the way we read? Is it possible or desirable to teach literature mimetically?
– The Defense of Poesy by Sir Philip Sidney
– Mimesis by Erich Auerbach
– "Advice to Youth" and Fenimore Cooper’s Literary Offenses by Mark Twain
– Red Badge of Courage by Stephen Crane
– Autobiography by Benjamin Franklin
– The Illiad of Homer
– Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare
– The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
