Lit 223A — Introduction to Literary Genre (Marylhurst University)
- In this course, we investigate the forms and functions of literary genre, examining their application to the interpretation of literature. We explore the various forms that literary creations can take: fiction, poetry, drama and film. Watching the evolution of these forms over time and their relationship to culture helps to provide our context for approaching literature. This course also includes a brief introduction to using literary theory as an interpretive lens.
