ENGL.Q 129 - Short Story Into Film

(PEQ English/Literature) This course examines short fictions to develop an understanding of the short story as a genre. Course begins with Poe and Hawthorne, in all their strange gothic glory; will go on to examine the realist and modernist developments of the late 19th and early 20th centuries; and concludes with postmodern experiments with form and content. We will view and discuss film adaptations. Course attends to historical and cultural contexts to understand the works not only as literature but also as entertainment. We will work to become sensitive probing readers and writers of literature and film. Course Codes: BR.
