Literary Reinvention

Fall 2021

Taught By: Rich Blint

Section: A

CRN: 7420

Credits: 4

This course explores the ways that literature is grounded in the very act of reinventing -- or reclaiming, or redirecting -- earlier stories, themes, rhythms, grievances, and passions for the author’s own purposes. Among the poems, essays, plays and novels to be read are works by: Shakespeare, Sor Juana Inés de La Cruz, Emily Dickinson, Walt Whitman, Virginia Woolf, and Toni Morrison. Together they represent a chronological spread from the early seventeenth century to the present day. This course fulfills the Core Course requirement in Literary Studies.
