ENG 213 - Transformations


Students will be introduced to the broad outlines of the English literary tradition through an encounter with texts drawn from multiple periods of English literary history, as well as be exposed to the dialogue between the Western and non-Western literary traditions.  This option for the English Core introduces you to a selection of texts that, in one way or another, take choice as their subject. How has the idea of choice changed or evolved over time and across cultures? How have the various iterations influenced one another? Literature is in constant conversation with not only the world from which it springs, but with other literature as well. Thus, we will focus on the transformation of genres, themes, and ideas as the result of these conversations, while paying special attention to how that conversation in the West has responded to new voices.
