This course is an-depth study and discussion of a few American and/or British writers. In studying works paired by theme, genre, or topic, students can enrich their sense of each author’s distinctive methods, gain a deeper sense of the development of those writers’ careers, and examine preconceptions about what makes an author or a work “great.” Topics and approaches vary depending on the instructor. Film selections may be included to accompany the literary texts. Prerequisite or co-requisite: ENGL110G: College Composition I or ENGL111G College Comp I with Lab.
