Uitgebreide vaknaam Making Meaning: Introduction to English Literatures I
Leerdoelen Upon successful completion of the module students will have demonstrated:
- understand basic concepts of practical literary criticism in their application on works of English literature;
- come to carefully argued conclusions about a literary text through the use of close reading;
- present literary findings in sufficiently structured writing.
Omschrijving This course introduces students to literary studies in English. Students will acquire a basic knowledge of literary terminology and of major literary genres in English literature. They will study and discuss a broad range of texts, including poetry, prose, drama and essays, and gain an understanding of their generic as well as of their unique aspects. The critical, analytic and creative engagement with these fascinating texts will provide a sound foundation for the later study of English literature, conveying also, we hope, the many pleasures of reading literature.
