ENG 120-04 - Literary Analysis (Fall)

4 credits (Fall)
Students in this section will explore methods of analyzing novels, short fiction, films, and poetry. We will begin with a unit that involves reading a novel to use as a touchstone while exploring a range of critical and theoretical approaches. The course will then examine literature that embodies traditionally formal as well as experimental strategies in poetry, film, and other modes. We will discuss the ways authors craft their works, and we will develop strategies for analyzing those choices in academic papers. Graded assignments will include frequent short writing assignments and longer papers.

Prerequisite: None.
Instructor: Simpson
