Expanded Course Description
ENG 108 is the second of a three-part chronological survey of international trends in literature from its archaic and classical origins to the present. The course seeks to give students a truly global sense of literary history by incorporating works in various genres from Asia, the Near East, Africa, Latin America, Europe, North America, and elsewhere. ENG 108 spans the period from the European Renaissance to the beginnings of the Industrial Revolution, focusing on cultural relations between the Near East and Europe. The course juxtaposes Western and non-Western readings, challenging students to locate "classic" literary works within a global perspective. All works are read in English translation. Weekly readings of short stories and novels are substantial in scope and difficulty, and students will be asked to compose critical essays of varying length, totaling at least 8-10 pages. With a comparative focus on various literary traditions, this course satisfies the University Multicultural Requirement in the International Cultures category. In offering students a broad introduction to college-level literary studies, ENG 108 also satisfies the university's Group Requirement in the Arts and Letters category. The world literature courses, ENG 107, 108, and 109, may be taken as a yearlong sequence or individually. There are no prerequisites, and no background knowledge of international literary history is expected.
