Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The PS is concerned with different aspects of the literary criticism of creative writers, touching the relationship with the writers' own oeuvre as well as its place in the general reception of the time (and often contrasting with the latter). Sources range from various published texts (monographs, poetological writings, lectures, essays, etc.) to diaries and letters; writers of different eras and cultures will be featured.

Assessment and permitted materials

Presentation and participation in the discussions; term paper (12-15 pages)

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

The goal of the course is for the student to become acquainted with the range of literary criticism and its meaning, and to learn how to deal with individual cases. At the same time a number of critical schools and trends of criticism shall be made apparent via historical contextualization.

Examination topics

The various examples are perfectly suited for presentations and ensuing discussions, where different approaches can be contrasted.
