engl229w / lang229w an introduction to comparative literature (3) (ga;gh) comparative literature is the study of the different literary traditions and their influence on each other. it is a form of literary history in which the traditions being studied are not treated as isolated instances, but as mutually influential parts of a larger story. the course will focus on the study of comparative literature, the study of how comparative literature contributes to the understanding of the history of literature, and how the former influences the latter. as such, the course will read some of the most important works in comparative literature from around the world in order to explore how different traditions and literatures interact and exchange ideas, and how the history of literature is an integral part of the history of culture. the first half of the class will focus on certain themes in comparative literature, e.g. the classical tradition of europe and the modern tradition of the americas, literature from the caribbean, literature from the middle east, literature from africa and asia, literature from other parts of the world, and so on. the second half of the class will concentrate on works of comparative literature, both written and performed, that are part of the reading list for the course. the course is appropriate for english majors and minors, and for students in the comparative literature minor.
ENGL252N Introduction to Drama (3)(GA) The course will study drama as an art form in its own right and it will be devoted to a close reading of a play or a selected number of plays, in English or in the original, as occasion may demand. The play will be studied as a work of art, historically, culturally, and artistically. It will not be treated as a unit of reference for the study of English literature, although some plays will obviously function in that role. The course will be concerned primarily with plays that are written by or directed by women. Students will be expected to write a reading for the course, which is expected to be an original piece of work, and will be encouraged to reflect on the kind of dramatic art they have been studying. It is hoped that this course will demonstrate the value of studying works of drama in their own right as a contribution to our understanding of the nature of art and of our personal and social lives.
PLACENL48 Women Poets (3) An analysis of selected work by women poets of the Romantic, Victorian, modern, and postmodern eras of English literature. Each course offers a section by section analysis of a well-known poem by a woman poet, often accompanied by a study of the cultural history and critical reception of the poem. This course will also look at the representation of women in British poetry from Elizabethan times to the present. The course will also explore how the representation of women has been informed by changes in the social, political, and scientific landscape of modern, especially 20th-century British culture. From 1820, the year of Queen Victoria’s accession, to 1980, the year of Margaret Thatcher’s, the century has seen a shift in how we view women in society and in literature. Critical literacy is key to an understanding of this change, and is the foundation for an exploration of how modern literature has been informed by these changes. The work of three women poets, Amy Levy, Elizabeth Jennings and Teresa Deevy, will be the central focus of this course: the remarkable imagination of Jennie. By the end of the course, students should have a greater awareness of how women writers have represented themselves to their readers, including their experience of themselves as writers and their understanding of the status of women within their societies.
