Short Course Description

Narratives govern our lives. They shape the way in which we view our surroundings, others and ourselves. Narratives can be captivating, powerful, deceptive and intricate. This course aims to teach students the basic terms of narrative analysis and to help them apply these terms to some of the most engaging short stories in the English language. Under my guidance, students will learn about the elements of fiction: plot, point of view, characterization, setting, style, and theme. We will read and explore texts from the eighteenth through the twenty-first centuries and consider some of the central issues in the history of narrative theory. By the end of this course, students will have acquired the necessary skills in order to embark on the critical analysis of fiction on an academic level. Course requirements include two writing assignments (40% + 40%) and participation in the class forum (20%).
