ENG 490 Gender and Literature

3 Credits

As an appreciation and analysis of literature by both men and women through gender-focused readings, “Feminist” and “reader-response” criticism are two ways of unraveling the biases that gender roles, literary influences, reader expectations, and human relationships create in a literary work of art. Milton, Lawrence, Hemingway, the Brontës, the Shelleys, Glaspell, Dinesen, and others are the focus of discussion of gender issues in fiction, poetry, and drama from Genesis to the 20th century.

Prerequisite(s): English Literature Core.
