The only difference between the USF for-credit course and the free public version on iTunes U is the lack of direct access to the instructor and freedom from the three classes per week time table of a semester schedule. The iTunes version is self paced. Anyone taking the course on iTunes will be able to interact with others who are at the...

Invitation to a Beheading

  • Genre: Fiction & Literature
  • File Size: 774781 Bytes


Like Kafka's The Castle, Invitation to a Beheading embodies a vision of a bizarre and irrational world. In an unnamed dream country, the young man Cincinnatus C. is condemned to death by beheading for "gnostical turpitude," an imaginary crime that defies definition. Cincinnatus spends his last days in an absurd jail, where he is visited by chimerical jailers, an executioner who masquerades as a fellow prisoner, and by his in-laws, who lug their furniture with them into his cell. When Cincinnatus is led out to be executed, he simply wills his executioners out of existence: they disappear, along with the whole world they inhabit....
