This course teaches students the processes of close reading, analysis and interpretation of literature and invites students to make connections between literature and their experiences. Students learn to distinguish between reading for comprehension and reading for pleasure, to recognize key principles of storytelling, and to distinguish types of literary works. Introducing students to texts that are international and multicultural in scope as well as to Western literature, the course focuses on the repeatable, universal patterns that inform various literatures and cultures and the effects of various cultural myths on literary works.
