Fall 2010 Course: Literary Analysis

Here is one of my Fall 2010 courses, the basic intro-to-literary-studies course required of all English majors at CU.

ENGL 2000-001: Literary Analysis

Official description: Provides a basic skills course designed to equip students to handle the English major. Emphasizes critical writing and the acquisition of basic techniques and vocabulary of literary criticism through close attention to poetic and prose language.

This section: A writing-intensive course focused on developing interpretive and expressive skills. We will write a series of short papers and discuss writing strategies during class in the context of poetry, drama, and prose. Further, we will study a series of terms chosen to assist you in understanding genre, form, historical period, and other broad categories of literary discourse. This course is designed less to be an all-encompassing introduction to the discipline than it is to provide you with tools with which you can enter the discipline on your own.
