Event Description

TITLE: The Search for Meaning in Miguel de Unamuno's "Saint Manuel, Martyr"
DATE: March 31, 2017
LOCATION: Montclair State University-University Hall, ADP Center Room 1145
TIME: 8:30 AM-3:30 PM
INSTRUCTOR: Linda Gould Levine

The writings of Miguel de Unamuno have long fascinated students of Spanish literature for their probing nature into the existence of God and the complexity of human identity. His exquisitely written 1931 novel, “San Manuel Bueno, mártir” (“Saint Manuel, Martyr”) asks us to consider if belief in God is necessary to be a good priest, if happiness is possible without faith, if religion fosters or impedes social progress. This one day seminar explores such questions through the lens of the existential crisis experienced by Unamuno’s village priest, Manuel. A literary jewel that moves and provokes readers, this short novel transcends its historical moment and speaks to the longing of individuals to believe in something greater than themselves – God, social change, collective movements, writing as salvation, companionship.
