Required for the Literature track, this course investigates a variety of critical schools and traditions through the study of literary critics ranging from the ancient to the postmodern. Readings may focus on aesthetic, cultural, and ethical dimensions of literature, on the role of the critic, and on the proliferation of competing theories during the latter half of the twentieth century. You will cultivate your own philosophies of interpretation and apply them to primary texts. Providing a thorough grounding in both theory and practice, EP344 will give you the tools and show you how to use them.
