Description:

Women in Literature is designed to be an elective English course which will introduce students to writing by both men and women authors, about important female characters. This course will enable students to describe and critically examine the tradition of women's roles in literature over time; deconstruct the all-encompassing images of women in literature; and analyze the way in which authors define women’s experiences in terms of language. The students will read a wide variety of works in prose and verse-including novels, plays, short stories, essays, and poetry by British, American, Canadian, European, and African writers. Many of these works from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries are interrelated or comment on each other, so that as the students proceed through the course, they should develop an understanding of the way in which a tradition in women's roles have evolved, and in what ways this tradition has encouraged or informed the works of individual authors.
