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.
- demonstrate familiarity with some Works of literatures as well as methods of studying literature and culture across national and linguistic boundaries and evaluate the nature, function and value of literature from a global perspective.
The course runs through winter semester and summer semester starting from 1st of September 2019 and ending around the 30thof May 2020.
