Dangerous Pleasures: An Introduction to Literary Studies (1016LHS)

This course introduces the discipline of literary studies through case studies of a wide and diverse selection of shorter fiction. It will combine detailed attention to the formal design of the fiction with a consideration of geographical and social location, and historical context. The literature will be drawn from Ireland, the United Kingdom, the Caribbean, United States of America, and Australia. The course examines literary form and language and develops methods of close reading and is designed to increase your confidence when responding to literature. It also looks at the study of literature as a discipline with its own history, topics, methods, and debates. It considers how the study of literature can be an important practical, vocational, cultural, and social component of a university education. INCOMPATIBLE: 1112HUM Great Books A; 1013HUM Great Books B; 1016HUM/1016LHS Texts and Traditions.
