LIT 379 Literature and the Environment



Students in this course will examine the power of literary representation (re-presentation) by studying portrayals of the relationship between human beings and the biosphere.  The course focuses on understanding how language has the power to not only reflect but also shape attitudes and so, ultimately, to shape the world around us.  Texts will include a range of American texts, fiction and non-fiction, historical and contemporary, prose and poetry, works deliberately created to have a specific impact on readers. Prerequisite: FCO 105 

3 credit hours
