Course description

This course serves as half of the introduction to the Comparative Literature major. It is designed for sophomores and juniors (although I notice that some you are seniors), and may also be taken by first-year students, English majors, and non-majors. Materials consist of plays, stories, letters, and poems from English, French, German, Russian, a= nd Spanish authors, beginning with the seventeenth-century.


Course objectives

In this class you will learn to read literature carefully= and analytically; respond to literature both orally and in writing; and underst= and the value of comparing different literatures. You will become familiar with certain intellectual and artistic concepts: the Enlightenment, Romanticism, Realism, Symbolism, and Modernism. There is also a secret purpose that will= be announced in class, something only a literature class can give you.


Required Text

q      = The Norton Anthology of World Masterpi= eces, vol. 2, 7th edition, available at Von’s Bookstore.


Reading: 916= pages; approximately 30 pages per class. Please allow at least six hours per week = of homework time for class reading, plus extra time for writing papers and studying for exams.


Exams: There= are three exams worth 10% each and a final worth 20%, as shown on the syllabus.= The final exam will be on Madame Bovary= . You may bring your books and any notes to the exams.


Papers: Ther= e are two take-home papers, one topics to be assigned, and one final paper, a comparison of two poems by any two authors. Each paper is worth 15%. These papers are assigned to make you comfortable writing and thinking; therefore they may be rewritten for a new grade, in which case the first grade will b= e 5% and the second grade 10%.


Attendance and participation: You are expected to attend every class. Missin= g more than three classes means you have dropped the course. Absences may be excus= ed by a note from the appropriate Purdue dean or organization or from home. Pl= ease be on time. 5% of your grade will be based on active participation, any in-class presentations, and overall attendance.
