Course Description

This course enables students to engage in detailed literary study of selected genres and national literatures. Students will synthesize and evaluate key issues of literary scholarship through studies of the texts, literary biography, and literary criticism. Texts will be examined for their aesthetic values, their social and political contexts, their rhetorical and generic strategies, and biographical facts about the authors/ literary movements in which they participate. Students may compile annotated bibliographies, make oral presentations, write short papers, and write one substantial scholarly essay or creative project, based on research. This course is open to Honors Program students.

Prerequisite: CSEN1020 or CSHR1020 with approval of the honors director. 3 Credits
