Understanding Literature

Description:
This course offers guided practice in the close reading of three major literary genres-poetry, fiction, and drama-with works to be drawn from various historical periods. (A fourth genre may be added at the instructor's discretion.) The course explores the distinctive features of each genre, along with the concepts and terminology necessary to understand it accurately and communicate about it effectively. Close reading is integrated with aesthetic and evaluative responses to the literary works. A bridge to Literary Studies II (ENGL 300) is provided through focused study of at least one work from a biographical, historical, cultural, or other perspective. This course requires intensive writing.
