Great leaders must possess so many qualities and deal with such challenging situations that no group of academic studies can possibly account for them all. This course treats the complexities of leadership—its qualities, subtleties, ambiguities, dilemmas—through the study of the creative vehicles of biography, literature, and film. Students tackle the lives of successful entrepreneurs and giants of the recent past, such as Howard Hughes, Katherine Graham, and Gandhi, and also leaders as they appear in literature such as Antigone (Sophocles), Julius Caesar (Shakespeare),Frankenstein (Shelley), Billy Budd (Melville), The Guest (Camus), Night Flight (Saint-Exupéry), A Doll's House (Ibsen), and Death of a Salesman (Miller)—all in order to fathom some of the complex dimensions of leadership. Prerequisites: an interest in literature and the flexibility to apply concepts gleaned from the readings to practical situations faced by managers.
