ENGH 150 - Literary Analysis

4 credits
This course immerses students in the art of close reading, exploring topics as varied as intimacy and isolation, war stories, justice, ghosts, and the Holocaust. Students learn to pay close attention not just to what a text communicates, but how: its linguistic textures, imagery, narrative patterns, structure, and genre. English 150 also gives students sustained practice as writers of literary criticism, whose interpretations are based on textual evidence and move fluidly between the voice of the author and the voice of the interpreter. By the end of the course, students should be able to read and write about a literary text with insight and authority. Offered every semester. CLA-Breadth/Humanities
