ENG 5201-5204 - Foundations in Fiction

3 credit hours

Prerequisites: CRW 5011 - 5012 and 5013 - Theory and Practice of Creative Writing  
Corequisites: CRW 5201-5204 - Workshop in Fiction  
This survey of both canonical and contemporary texts offers a focused study of fiction designed to reinforce the relationship between close reading and the production of new work. Students will examine the development of the novel in literary history, as well as the emergence of the short story as an art form. Students read from an individual reading list developed in consultation with the faculty mentor. The course will include intensive reading, response essays, and short critical analyses. Students will complete a longer critical paper on a specific topic suggested by their reading experience. The reading list will include, but not be limited to, works based on the optional thematic strand of war literature.

Course may be repeated with course numbers ENG-5202, ENG-5203, ENG-5204
