EN185 Images of Women in Literature
Prerequisite/Co-requisite: EN 101.
This course studies recurring and changing images of women in literature, considering the ways in which such representations either do or do not correspond to our understanding of gender differentiation in the world. The validity of these images and archetypes will be examined, as will the categories and roles occupied by--and symbolic of--women. Authors studied in this course have included Angelou, Brooks, Browning, Jong, Kumin, Rich, Sexton, and Shange. A library component is included.
