EN 133 Studies in Narrative (Fall/Spring: 3)
This course introduces students to questions that they might bring to the
study of narrative worksprimarily novels, tales, and non-fictional
narratives, though it may also include drama, film, and narrative poems.
It aims to introduce the various critical frames through which we construct
interpretations. As part of the process of reading, students will be introduced
to common critical terms; narrative genres, conventions, and discourses;
the construction of the character and the ways of representing consciousness;
and the ordering of narrative time. The course will also expose the student
to the implications of taking critical positions.
