Meaning and Interpretation - Fall 2019 - Dr. Jeanne McGinn
(ENG103-1 FA19 Dr. McGinn)

In this course we will broaden and deepen our minds and support the further development of critical, creative thought about ourselves and Western culture. We will discuss the religious overtones of writers such as Flannery O’Connor, Ernest Hemingway, as well as the function of negative space in the short stories of Raymond Carver and Tobias Wolff. We will also explore contemporary writers publishing in the world of small presses, including authors such as Panio Gianopolous, Jason Arment, Elizabeth Scanlon and Nathan Alling Long. Students will be required to present oral interpretations of written works, as well as write thoughtful analyses of literary texts.
