230419 Reading the Literary Canon (S) (SoSe 2020)

Inhalt, Kommentar

This course will take place.
We will communicate mainly via the LernraumPlus and emails.
You will mostly be able to do the work in your own time; but occasionally I will want us to engage in discussions in real time in the LernraumPlus chat and forum.
I will upload videos with the help of panopto, so please download that app via the uni website.

Unlike the texts in other seminars, the poems, plays, short stories and novels to be discussed in this class have nothing in common except the fact that they have traditionally been regarded as “great literature” (which is not necessarily the same as ‘popular literature’). If you enjoy reading literary texts and feel that you have not had the opportunity to confront yourself with some of the ‘biggies’ of Eng. Lit., send me an email and suggest one (or several!).
The reading list will be compiled by the members of this seminar. There are, however, certain criteria of selection: the list should cover, within reason, the last 1000 years and all three major genres (drama, poetry, narrative prose); it must be part of "the literary canon" (we will discuss what this is); and it should not contain texts commonly done at school. (I reserve a veto for myself...) Historical, cultural and theoretical aspects will be considered as appropriate.
