Analysis of Literary Forms

ENG3001 Analysis of Literary Forms (3)

In this course students will read and discuss some of the most influential texts and concepts of literary theory. Ultimately, the course prepares students to write a scholarly essay of literary analysis through the process of interpreting a primary text with the aid of secondary source criticism. Students will engage in advanced critical analysis of literary forms, including poetry, prose, short fiction, the novel, drama, and film. This course is required for all English Literature majors preparing to enter a teacher credential program; however, it presents a broad overview of literary analysis and may be used as a Humanities elective in the Leadership and Ethics Core.
