135. ACE 005W: Great Works of Literature

Contact:Richard Adams
Abstract:This course satisfies one of the W requirements. We will do careful and close
readings of the three main literary genres: fiction, drama, and poetry. We
will put on scenes from the plays we read and see film versions of some of the
assigned texts where possible. If possible, we might go to an off
Broadway play. This course aims to introduce students to learn how
literary texts and how to write about a literary work; therefore, this course
combines a study of literature with continued training in clear and effective
written expression. The overriding aim is to give students an appreciation of
the three main literary forms and to develop a respect for the power of diverse
literary expressions and the ways literature affects our imagination and
reveals the human condition. Implicit in this aim is to discover why some
literary texts have gotten and continue to be banned.
