ENGL 30100 Methods of Literary Study

What does it mean to study literature critically? How can the critical study of literature help us to grow as readers, writers, and human beings? This course introduces you to the critical practices that form the foundation for the study and craft of literature. Together, we will read scholarly criticism and learn about the various theoretical perspectives through which literary scholars and writers often view and discuss literature. You will read literary texts and produce your own short creative writing pieces, analyzing both through the theoretical perspectives you have learned in the course to increase the sophistication of your reading and writing practices.
