I started in on this course, via podcast, today during my bus ride.
Introduction to Theory of Literature with Professor Paul H. Fry
About the Course
This is a survey of the main trends in twentieth-century literary theory. Lectures will provide background for the readings and explicate them where appropriate, while attempting to develop a coherent overall context that incorporates philosophical and social perspectives on the recurrent questions: what is literature, how is it produced, how can it be understood, and what is its purpose? view class sessions >>
