What are some possibilities for responding when we come upon something unexpected in literature or the visual arts? How can we appreciate new works or enhance our enjoyment of familiar ones? We will look at approaches from Aristotle to the modern age: general ideas with concrete examples. We’ll also look at how people valued and discussed the arts from the renaissance and enlightenment to the romantic and modern eras.

Mark Coleman has taught courses on literature at several universities (including 30 years at SUNY Potsdam). He has also presented courses for SOAR on Shakespeare in Film and (with his wife, Cynthia) several Vicarious Voyages.
