ENG 117 Intro to Literary & Cultural Studies
An introduction to the goals, methods, and implications of literary analysis in the 21st century. The underlying assumption is that there is no such thing as a generic or standard reading of a literary work; all readings take place in and depend on a critical framework, whether that be explicit or implicit. From this starting point, the course is constructed around several critical approaches. One of these is a formalist approach in which students interpret the literary text on the basis of its formal features and stylistic conventions. Students will then explore other opposing and overlapping critical approaches, including but not limited to, feminist, Marxist, historicist, and psychological. Prerequisite: ENG 101 or permission of instructor.
