This course covers seminal extracts from the work of major literary/cultural theorists especially those whose work initiated particular schools of literary/cultural criticism. Students examine the work of these theorists in the order in which they appeared on the historical scene. Students also explore how the work of each theorist built upon, extended, challenged, or problematized, that of predecessors. Students apply these taught theories to several major works of literature. The class runs as a seminar and culminates with a final essay.
Prerequisite: ENG 101
