ENG 382 Literary Theory: Plato to Poststructuralism (3 credits)

Examination of some of the major issues in literary theory from the time of Plato to the present, including, but not limited to, the rhetorical effect of literature, the relationship between the text and the world, notions of the expressive power of literature, the formal qualities of the literary text, and poststructuralist notions of language. The course provides students with the opportunity to draw upon theory for their own literary analyses and prompts them to formulate their own theories about what literature is and does.
