LIT 101 Close and Critical

What does it mean to closely read literature? How does one develop a critical textual interpretation in writing? Through discussion and analysis of a variety of literary texts (e.g., fiction, poetry, drama, film), students will gain practice in investigating texts from historical, cultural, and formal viewpoints. While this course serves as a gateway to the Literature curriculum, in its emphasis on preparing students to be perceptive readers and articulate writers, it is useful across disciplines.
