ENGL 453 - The Female Literary Tradition

Credits: (3)
Instructional Method: Three hours lecture.
Prerequisites: CORE 101  and CORE 102 .
Study of the distinctive literary heritage shared by women writers in England and North America from the Renaissance to the present. The theoretical grounding of the course is current French and Anglo-American feminist criticism, from which perspective the course traces the development of a women’s literary tradition in English and considers a number of issues pertinent to the study of women’s writing: women’s relationship to a dominant literary tradition, representations of female experience in both the dominant and the female tradition, gender and genre, and female creativity. This course may be used to meet requirements for the minor in Women’s and Gender Studies.
