This course teaches critical writing about literature, and just as importantly, gives students practice critical writing. Students learn key terms in literary analysis, practice close reading, and acquire strategies for making interesting, convincing, and unified arguments about literary texts. We discuss how to move from particular moments in literature to interpretations of literature; how to study literature in ways that help us better understand culture, history, and politics; as well as how to organize sentences, paragraphs, and essays effectively.
