Description

This will be a class in narrative essay writing. Essays are movements of thought which change minds. The first goal of the essay is to change your own mind; to develop a new idea, to derive a new understanding from the exploration of the details of an event or set of events. The second goal of the essay is to arrange prose such that a reader experiences your thinking as you did, thus changing their mind as your mind was changed. The premise of this course is to engage that process as an art in and of itself. We will read extensively across the history of the essay from the ancient world to the present day, we will diagram every essay we read in order to decode the structures of thought embedded in all essays, and we will apply those structures onto our own thinking to produce essays modeled after the prose we explore.
