ENGL 1102

From Gerald R. Lucas

English Composition II

English Compostion II—the more exciting sequel to ENGL 1101—focuses on literary analysis and interpretation in writing. It concentrates on close readings of literary texts, and teaches students crucial critical-thing, research. and composition skills for college and beyond.

ENGL 1102 provides an introduction to traditional literary forms—prose, poetry, and drama—and an examination of other cultural texts, like film, music, and visual arts. This course will also introduce to students various approaches to textual interpretation, like reader-response, ethical, feminist, and psychological modes of criticism. Through various readings, forum posts, research activities, and instructed guidance, students will further develop those written and verbal skills begun in English Composition I.
