The aim of Introduction to Western Literature I, II, & III is to help students to read carefully, think critically, and express themselves cogently, by engaging in close study of literary works. The course thus aims to improve their critical skills, English-language skills, and cultural/literary knowledge.
To introduce three major western literary genres （fiction, poetry, drama） over a 3-semester course, and to strengthen students in reading, analyzing, and discussing works of literature from a discerning and critical standpoint.
In each of three semesters students are introduced to both representative and non-traditional texts in fiction, poetry and drama respectively. Students read closely, think critically, and evaluate texts chosen to elucidate critical ideas introduced in class. Class meetings include instructor-led textual examination, student-generated discussion, and individual or group presentations of selected works.
