ENG 100/111 - Rites of Passage: Metamorphosis in Western Literature (Core/First-Year Seminar)

This course introduces students to the methods and strategies of critical thinking and writing, focusing on the theme of transformation (physical and otherwise) in Western literature, from Ovid through Shakespeare and on to the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Through close reading of our key texts, we will explore issues of language, power, gender, race, class, and identity formation, and consider the ways in which literature is itself a process of metamorphosis.
