COURSE DESCRIPTION
A study of representative / landmark
texts from the literatures of the world as
a dynamic interaction among:
• The individual
• Society

your own perspectives within national
and global contexts
• GOAL: develop the skills of interpreting,
uncovering, and extracting meaning
from encounters and experiences.
• This course requires substantial out-of-
class reading and writing.
COURSE OBJECTIVES

contexts and frameworks of the literary
texts;

appreciation of fiction and its various
conventions in the analysis of how the
elements of fiction operate in the
construction of meaning;

spiritual, and aesthetic values
expressed in literature;
