John Milton, Elie Wiesel, Nawal El Saadawi, God, Transgression
Comparative Literature | Religion
What do a religious work published in 1667, a Holocaust memoir, and a contemporary Egyptian feminist's novel have in common? These three pieces seem to have nothing in common at first glance. And there are bound to be cross-cultural situations that should be considered when reading these works in concert with one another, but nonetheless, these works do have some aspects in common. Each of the works deals with interactions between God and man.
