ENG 710 Studies in Literary Theory
4 hours; 4 credits
This course is designed to help students gain an understanding of different ways of thinking of, talking about, and writing on literature. Such an understanding is important for graduate study because it has become increasingly part of the field. Possible formats of this course include twentieth-and twenty-first century approaches to interpretation (structuralism, historicism, feminism, and so forth), the history of criticism (selection from writers ancient and modern), practical applications of theoretical models, and detailed study of a particular methodology. In general, this course investigates ways in which literature creates meaning and methodology.
