Course Code: GLIT 110

Academic Year: 2018-2019

Through a broad range of readings chosen from the beginnings of English literature to the present, this course surveys four major literary genres: poetry, drama, the short story and the novel. Students will explore diverse literary forms within these genres by reading the imaginative works of major authors representing various historical periods and nationalities - men and women who are at once creators and innovators of literary traditions. This course approaches works of English literature through their formal characteristics and genres as well as through their themes and thematic patterns. This course is only for students in the General Arts & Science program.
