ENG 100/144 - Literary Evolutions (Core/First-Year Seminar)

Three or Four Credits
Fall and Spring Semesters

Etymologically (at the word’s root), literature is associated with “humane learning” and “literary culture” (see OED). Our primary goal in this course is to recognize the interdependence of literary evolution and human culture. We will explore how literature evolves over time and across discourses. Close readings of core texts and their offshoots will offer insight into the concepts of adaptation, intertextuality, and cultural capital. Finally, we shall analyze how authors revise key literary themes in the context of poetry, prose, drama, music, film and the graphic novel, and television.
