ENGL 4000 - Major Authors


3 cr. 3 hr Offered every semester.

This rotating course explores in depth the works and career of a major author who has made significant contributions to literary tradition. Students gain a unique understanding of literature by tracing out a variety of themes and genres within the author’s major and minor works. Through close attention to a single author students also learn first-hand how biographical, historical and literary contexts come to shape artistic output; the course also includes research and readings in literary criticism on the author. Course may be repeated for credit up to three times (for a total of four).

Prerequisite(s): ENGL 1200  and satisfactory completion of one 3 cr. literature course at the 2000 or 3000 level, or permission of instructor
