Course materials for Fantasy After Tolkien

Here are the course materials for my Spring 2012 Modern and Contemporary Literature course, Fantasy after Tolkien.

The syllabus includes course policies, grading information, and CU boilerplate stuff on disabilities, etc.

The Daily Schedule lists due dates for readings, papers, and quizzes.

The Text List lists. . . err. . . texts.

I have also included here the prompts for the course’s six short writing assignments (of which the students will complete three of their choice). I have created all six assignments ahead of time to give the course some shape and to allow students to look ahead and think about which writing tasks most interest them.
