ENG 214 - New Worlds


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 will introduce you to a selection of major literary texts that investigate or offer new worlds to their readers. The premise of this core course is that these works are practical. By working with them, we will hone our ability to read texts, our worlds, each other, and ourselves. The course will emphasize how literature has given us new ways of thinking about past and future, old worlds and new.
