About the Literature Program
Introduction to Literature
Students in literature courses will:
- Write fresh interpretations of texts and/or issues in literary studies in which you 1) perform a reasonable close reading by analyzing relevant literary elements (techniques, themes, forms/genres, stylistic choices, or other literary devices), and 2) make appropriate references to relevant texts.
- Indicate how you (might) use or adapt literary elements (techniques, themes, forms/genres, stylistic choices, or other literary devices) used by writers in this course for your own development in the arts and communications.
- Draw upon course materials to develop further, meaningful questions about this course, other literature courses, or other areas of the arts and communications.
- Demonstrate how common or culturally specific heritages, perspectives, histories, and/or belief systems influenced the writers in this course and the forms or genres in which they wrote.
