ENGL 338 - Perspectives on a Single Author (3 credits)


(Prereq: ENGL 101  and ENGL 102  with a grade of ‘C’ or better) This course develops students’ focused understanding of literary and/or cultural works by a particular author. Through our close readings and in-depth analyses of the text/s as well as our critical study of the temporal and cultural contexts within which the author’s work/s were produced and received, we understand texts as cultural artifacts of their times that reflect the author’s and their contemporary society’s investments and preoccupations. At the same time, we analyze how our transhistorical and transcultural interest in the work/s of the author are sustained by our ability to engage with the text/s and interpret it/them through diverse critical and theoretical lenses.
