PUNJ401 Devotional Literature in Punjabi Sections
Emphasis is on reading and written expression. Analytical writing in English and Punjabi required.
The class will introduce students to devotional literature in Punjabi, drawing primarily but not exclusively on readings from the Adi Granth or Guru Granth Sahib. The work of the Sikh Gurus and the Bhagats (primarily Kabir and Baba Farid) will both be examined. The class will also examine Sufi literature in Punjabi, primarily the work of Bulhe Shah.
