Unit Description

This is a course of guided reading which allows the self-motivated student the freedom to grapple with major literary works of the tradition. As such, it is a capstone for the English major. This is a course of intensive reading, and the requirement is to read two or three major works (depending on length) and engage in a careful analysis of how these works are created and what they have to say. Examples of such works in the English language might include: Middlemarch, Moby Dick, or a Shakespeare play, and the case could be made by the student for any number of other works. The course of readings will be supplemented with seminars focused on cultivating a critical sensibility through the reading of important critical writings on the novel.


Teaching Strategies

Teaching strategies include: seminars, lectures, weekend schools; class discussions; role plays and readings in class; memorisation and recitation; DVD, video, audio and online interaction; and testing.
