This course considers the nature of literary interpretation by introducing students to concepts, debates and controversies in criticism today. Students learn about common critical terms and theoretical approaches and apply these terms and approaches to a variety of fictional texts, such as drama, short stories, poetry and novels. In doing so, students learn how to use disciplinary frameworks to ask new questions about texts, to develop their interpretative skills and to participate in the professional discourse of this field.
