ENG 120-02 - Literary Analysis (Spring)

4 credits (Spring)
This course is an introduction to methods of literary analysis for poetry, short fiction, novels, and drama. We will begin with poetry, working on developing a vocabulary for discussion and interpretation of poetry, and focusing on imagery, sound, themes, rhyme and meter, and other elements. The middle units of the course will be devoted to close readings of short fiction and one novel, Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein, and we will conclude with a consideration of some of the most important elements of drama via Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House and August Wilson’s The Piano Lesson.

Prerequisite: None.
Instructor: Barlow
