ENGL 340

Literary Genre: Poetry

In these four courses, literature is studied according to its major types or classes: poetry, fiction, drama, non-fiction such as autobiography/biography, and the literary essay. The formal and technical aspects of each type, its conventions and development as modern literature, are studied. Often particular classes cover sub-genres, such as Detective Fiction or the Modern American Novel (ENGL 342), Romantic Poetry or Modern American Poetry (ENGL 340); or Contemporary Drama (ENGL 341).
