World Literature: Literary Analysis & Writing
The focus of this course is three-fold: first, to hone skills of close readings and careful analysis of literary texts; second, to bring measurable improvement in each student’s writing through a step-by-step building of skills; third, to explore contemporary works of world literature within their cultural context. Students will demonstrate their mastery of the material through class discussions, tests, papers, and projects.
Students must print and bring to class numerous literary selections in lieu of using a textbook. In addition, students will need to obtain their own copies of various books such as "Tasting the Sky: A Palestinian Childhood," "Hiroshima," "Things Fall Apart," and "The Queen of Water." (These texts are subject to change.) There will be several works that will need to be printed out, read, and brought to class for discussion.
