ENG 205 Writing About World Literature
This course refines and enhances the writing skills developed in Writing 101 and Writing 102 through engagement with a selection of representative works by important international writers. As in English 201 and 203, we cover representative works of poetry, drama, and prose. As in English 201 and 203, we explore how important works of literature helped to shape, and were shaped by, events around the world. In particular, you will work to develop skills in close reading and analytical writing necessary to investigate the vexed cultural issues that such works engage—status, gender, race, nationhood, the other, family, education, and a host of other concerns. Finally, we consider how many of the writers we encounter reflect on writing itself, asking what literature is good for, what it can do, and how it relates to the rest of the world.
