Introduction to Literary Analysis (ILA) is a compulsory course designed to develop skills related to the critical analysis of literary texts in English. You will be introduced to important genres and authors in English and American literature, basic concepts of literary analysis, and will be encouraged to develop your own critical interpretations of the works we read.


In the Autumn semester we will focus on poetry, and in the spring semester we will continue to hone analytical skills as we look at prose and drama.
