ENGL 1015 Literature: How It Works

This course provides an overview of literary genres and techniques, and an introduction to the analysis of literary forms and language. Readings will be drawn from the principal literary genres: prose fiction, poetry, drama, and non-fictional prose. Readings will represent a variety of authors, genres, national literatures, and time periods, but the principal emphasis is on the relation of literary form to content and on training students in the close analysis and interpretation of literary meaning.
