This literature course considers the topic of the artist in the literature of Europe and America, exploring depictions of artists, the nature of creativity, and the social role and aspirations of art. In the light of changing ideas about the nature of humanity and of ideals of individuality, democracy, and reason, Western authors have viewed the creativity of both visual and verbal artist in diverse yet motivated ways.
