    Description

    This course is aimed at first-year students and intended to be taken in conjunction with the two-semester survey lecture of English and American literature and is designed to provide students with the analytic tools that are necessary in the academic study of English and American literatures. Students will be introduced to key concepts of the study of literature and learn to apply them to literary texts in order to become more precise and effective readers, researchers, and writers.

    In addition to developing students’ close reading skills, the seminar will give an overview of the major genres of literature – prose, poetry, and drama – and acquaint them with the literary conventions and terminology related to them.

    Literary texts that will be discussed in class will be made available on Moodle, but students are asked to acquire the following book, which will be made available at Librophoros at a reduced rate:

    • Abrams, M.H. & Harpham, G.G.  A Glossary of Literary Terms

    Requirements

    Credit requirements are active participation and regular attendance. The course will involve intensive written work, which students need to submit repeatedly during term time. More than two unexcused absences disqualify students from gaining credit. Grades are based on a final exam. This grade constitutes part of the final grade of the module exam.

    Info

    There are three parallel courses on offer, two in the autumn semester and one in the spring semester. The number of participants in each class is limited to around fifteen. Students are admitted to the course on a first come first serve base.

    Objectifs de formation

    On successful completion of the course, students will have acquired a basic knowledge of the key skills and terminology required for the analysis of English and American literature. They will have developed these skills in the close reading of texts and in class discussion.
