This course will be taught in person.
The course will introduce students to the basic knowledge, tools, and practices of literary analysis and contemporary criticism. We will look at how poetry and drama work and then focus on selected shorter texts and/or novels. Most of the necessary texts and excerpts will be made available for copying. Participants should acquire a copy of Michael Meyer’s English and American Literatures (4th Edition, Stuttgart: UTB basics) BEFORE the semester begins.
Your preliminary reading assignment is the first chapter of Michael Meyer’s English and American Literatures, "What is Literature?" You should make sure you have read this and made notes before the beginning of the first seminar.
