LIT-2910 Analysis and Interpretation of Literature

Ezra Pound once observed that "Great literature is simply language charged with meaning to the utmost possible degree." This course explores the major terms and concepts useful in finding and sharing this richer meaning. Traditional and contemporary works will be explored and discussed with an emphasis on analyzing, discussing, and writing about literature in both historical and critical contexts.

Advisory: Incoming students are expected to be familiar with the vocabulary and conventions of literary analysis as well as the correct use of MLA style documentation. Before enrolling in this course, students are strongly encouraged to complete ENC-1020: English Composition II and one or more introductory literature courses and/or have equivalent knowledge.
