Topic Course Title
Introduction to Literary Study: Fabulous Creatures
Topic Course Description
An amphibious biped named Larry. A vampire with a thing for Tarot cards. A famously morose beetle. In this course, we’ll encounter a host of literary hybrids—varied and various blends of the human, the supernatural, and the “beastly”—who, in teasing the credible, test our definitions of rationality and identity. Throughout the semester, we’ll develop and put into practice the critical skills of close reading, interpretation, and analysis in order to consider how writers construct these fabulous creatures—and to what ends.
