Credits: 3 credits
This course provides an opportunity for extended practice in literary criticism -- that is, in reading works closely and responding to them through interpretation and evaluation. Students examine a limited number of texts through a variety of critical theories such as formalism, reader response, psychological, New Historicist, feminist, deconstruction and cultural criticism. Students gain an understanding of the theories and of the degree to which each approach 'opens up' a text.
Prerequisite: Any two of ENGL 1100 or ENGL 1110 or ENGL 1120 or ENGL 1140 or ENGL 1210, and completion of 45 credits, or permission of the instructor Recommended: This course is recommended for English Majors.
