ENG 328 - Theory and Criticism of Literature

In this course, students will study the major schools of literary criticism, focusing on the formal (e.g. – deconstructive, reader-response, psychoanalytic) and the cultural (e.g. – Marxist, New Historicist, African-American, feminist) aspects of theory. Students will apply these theories to assigned works with recognized significance in the field. Students will write short responses to the theory and apply them. They will also undertake a major project where they undertake a fuller exploration of the two main approaches to theory (formal and cultural).
