Subject Title
Introduction to World Literature II

Subject Description

This course focuses on literature of the West from the Enlightenment, through the Romantic era, to the Modern era.  Students will study canonical texts that are representative of the societies in which they were created, and of the major literary modes of poetry, drama, and prose.  This course will analyze texts with an emphasis on the ways in which they embody or depict cross-cultural encounters, incorporate or challenge social ideologies (including categories of gender, race, class, and sexuality), and address contemporary philosophical questions. Because of this emphasis, this course builds extensively upon the texts and topics addressed in YKL100.  Students in this class will continue to learn the specific skills needed to write about literature, and will write at least two major papers and a final exam.
