Objectif

This explication de textes course will use Mary Shelley's Frankenstein as a point of entry into the study of narrative prose, focusing on the acquisition of tools and vocabulary that are necessary to analyze the English novel. In this part of the class, we will learn about mainly about narration and figurative language. We will also look at the text from several different theoretical perspectives (such as feminism) and practice constructing evidence in the service of reasoned arguments or claims about a text. Students are encouraged to read the novel before the class begins so that they can reread it more carefully and critically during the semester. We will be using the Bedfords St. Martins Case Studies in Contemporary Criticism edition, which will be available at Basta! as well as Books, Books, Books.

Evaluation

One short midterm and one final essay ; group discussion.
