Primary Instructor:

This section is designed to provide you with a rigorous introduction to writing insightful, clearly organized, graceful essays on readings in literature, both for this class and in subsequent classes at the university. By applying the basic principles of literary analysis to a variety of texts, you will gain experience in constructing theses, organizing clear, insightful essays, improving writing mechanics and style, and revising drafts thoroughly and productively.

Our course readings will include a broad selection of poetry, short fiction, and nonfiction, as well as a novel (likely Ceremony by Leslie Marmon Silko), all works that present visions of the American landscape.  Students will learn to read deeply and carefully, dealing with issues of politics, religion, race and nation as they emerge from texts which might, at first glance, seem only to be about such seemingly innocuous subjects as apples, flowers, or trees.
