An Introduction to English Novel

Course Code C0257 Th 3 Pr 3 CrHrs 3

This course explores the various strategies and techniques that authors have used to tell stories that claim in one way or another to be realistic. As we take up how storytellers "make it real" we will address key elements of narrative, including point of view, characterization, voice, tone, diction, syntax, setting, symbolism, pacing, modes of mediation, intertextuality, motifs, and figuration. We will focus primarily on novels and short stories, with a nod to the graphic novel at the conclusion of the course.

 Moreover, there will be good information about the writer and full analysis of the characters, the main ideas of the novel, the description of the places, and the students own points of view on the novel and the characters of the novel.
