This course surveys literary works commonly taught in middle and high school English classes, including novel, short story, drama, and poetry. The primary aim is to teach students to analyze these works to realize their complexity and depth; with this in mind, students will understand that adolescent literature can be appreciated by adult readers as well as literary scholars. To that end, students will be exposed to methods of critical theory and be expected to apply these methods to the works they study through written interpretations. Students will read primarily classic works, although some contemporary selections rich in literary allusions will be studied as well. This course is open to students of all majors who wish to fulfill their core English requirements.
