Introduction to Literature I: Fiction
This Course is OPEN.
Course Code
ENG 2001
Semester / Year
Fall 2013
Course Description

We will begin the semester by exploring short stories and learning the elements of fiction, and then we will move on to read two recent longer texts that foreground the act of storytelling itself. In particular, we will look closely at the ways in which the narrators of these texts constantly revisit, revise, and re-imagine their stories, blurring the lines between fiction and fact, and re-shaping both the plots and themselves in the process.
