ENG 100/130 - Fairy Tales, Folklore and Fantasy (Core/First-Year Seminar)

Three or Four Credits
Not Offered 2016-2017

Fairy tales, folklore and fantasy are repositories for literary and cultural expression across the boundaries of period and genre. This course will use the lens of the fairy tale, its reinterpretation and adaptation, to introduce students to various literary genres, including poetry, prose and drama, as well as close reading, literary analysis, and critical thinking. Texts, from a diverse range of nineteenth- and twentieth-century authors, will be thematically linked through questions of class and gender that often surface in the re-imaginings of classic tales.
