The instructor will select one of several possible formats to follow, such as thematic (e.g., women as mothers, wives, mistresses, shrews, temptresses, and heroes). The class will discuss themes, characters, structure, imagery, and point of view, all in relation to women's roles. This course meets General Education Core Goal 7: Aesthetic Sensibility & the Arts and Core Goal 12: Sensitivity to Global Perspectives and Cultural and Social Diversity.
