Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

It is the aim of this course to provide students with a basic toolkit for analysing literary texts. There will be a couple of introductory units, in which I will give you a brief theoretical background and review the basic concepts of literary analysis (narrative techniques, genre, point of view etc.) and critical approaches to literature you are going to need for your presentations and your portfolio. After the few introductory sessions, we will discuss selected literary texts from different genres and periods from various critical angles.

Methods: Lecture / teacher input, class discussions, student presentations

Assessment and permitted materials

Active class participation, oral presentation in groups of 4-5 students, portfolio to be submitted at the end of February.
