**Course meets with FRIT F564

Meets:  T   3:35-5:30    LI 951


This course will treat two sets of issues in literary criticism and
theory: I. Mimesis (Imitation), Representation and Vraisemblance,
II. Rhetoric and poetic language. Each reading will be considered as
an intervention in a continuing controversy about the relations
between literature, language and truth, from the ancients to recent
theories of structuralism and deconstruction. There will be a mid-
term and a final examination.
