Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

The course will deal with poems and short fiction, especially from the 19th and 20th centuries, in which primarily U.S.-American and Canadian writers present the formative experiences of individuals which have shaped their lives and given them a sense of identity. These crucial experiences are largely linked and rooted in specific landscapes, often rural, which are recovered and represented in the texts. Requirements: Regular attendance, active participation, and an oral presentation; a research paper (about 3500 words), and a final written test on the texts discussed in class.

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

This class deepens and extends the subject matter of the introductory lectures. It is intended to help students develop a well founded yet independent critical approach to literary texts. Participants are given a thorough grounding in various skills and techniques required for the writing of academic papers: the use of works of reference; the use and evaluation of secondary literature; more about the theory and practice of critical analysis; the correct use of literary terminology. A selection of literary texts forms the basis for this work. On completing the class, students should be in a position to take an active part in the literary seminar.
