Literary Interpretation

1:10p-2:25p D (25) 3 cr.


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.
