COURSE: 06-420 Literary Theory and Criticism (3)
A survey of literary critical traditions and major theoretical works in their historical context, this course engages students with the primary texts. Issues may include canon formation, reading practices, aesthetics, and the role of the author/artist in society. The course may be cross-referenced with 06-520X and offered for graduate credit to graduate students in good standing. Graduate students will be required to complete additional and more extensive assignments than undergraduate students, consistent with the typical demands of graduate programs in English. Prerequisite: 300-level literature requirements.
