PREREQUISITE: Completion of the English Composition requirement.
Open to Honors students only.
10:10a-11:00a MWF (20 students) 3 cr. A&H, IW.
We will read, discuss, and write about a range of literary works from
the last four centuries. Our primary attention will be on developing
those skills that are particularly useful in discovering,
articulating and exploring fruitful topics for literary analysis, and
in developing a better understanding of how to support interpretive
arguments with literary evidence. Texts will include a literary
anthology of poetry, drama and fiction, supplemented by a novel or
two. Intensive sessions being what they are, both the reading and
writing requirements will be heavy. Several short papers and a final
exam will be required.
