In this course, students learn the basics of literary analysis by looking at a number of stories that have been told and retold through a variety of lenses, demonstrating how the vantages provided by those lenses, be they cultural, economic, and political, shape the works. We will also look at how types of media affect these interpretations, including graphic narratives, painting, and film. There will be four major assignments in this class: a close reading, a comparison, a persuasive essay, and a short story of your own that adapts one of the works we have read. We will read novels such as Jeffrey Eugenides' The Virgin Suicides, Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House, and Stephen King's 'Salem's Lot, watch episodes of Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Desperate Housewives, and The Twilight Zone, and examine plays such as Shakespeare's Hamlet and Tom Stoppard's Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead.
