The Catholic imagination has produced an enormous body of global literature that plays upon themes of failure, self-scrutiny, and personal transformation. In touch with both the Catholic theological tradition and the experience of enlightenment characteristic of many world religions, this literature probes abiding questions of what it means to flourish as human beings amid the joys and anxieties of everyday life. This course examines the style and substance of this literature through an engagement with some of its notable texts.
