Course Number
LENG-223
Description

In this course, students explore different themes and genres within the field of literature, examining critical and creative thinking through literary analysis. Specifically, students will explore literary genres and devices, learn the conventions of literary analysis and elements of literary theory, and apply textual evidence in response to literary works. Students will explore how culture, society, and history impact literature and will learn how to discuss those elements. Although all sections will offer exposure to poetry and fiction, each LENG-223 course has a different focus and will explore readings from a variety of cultural perspectives. The titles of individual sections of LENG-223 identify the theme of that section and descriptions for each section are available at www.berklee.edu/liberal-arts.
