his course offers an introduction to the practice of literary analysis by providing students with analytical tools which they can apply to a variety of literary texts. Focusing on English-language prose texts and poems, students will analyse these texts within reading frames of narratology, reader-response, author-historical, psychoanalytical, postcolonial, and feminist discourses. They will become familiar with various generic categories as well as with important terms and methods specific to the study of fiction and poetry.
Students will become acquainted with English-language literary texts of different historical periods and literary genres. They will be able to identify literary devices and apply distinctive methods of textual analysis in order to reveal their functions in the text. They will become familiar with techniques of close reading and with the contextual embedding of a text within its socio-historical and cultural background, and will thus be equipped to respond to any new literary text autonomously in oral and written contributions as well as in a longer research paper.
