Environmental Literature

Course Number: 
ENG-318
Minimum Credits: 
3
An examination of diverse literary responses to the environment. Through poetry, fiction and non-fiction, students explore the role of the environment in the development of human language and literature. Even as environmental literature seeks to explain human relationships with the physical world, students will be able to identify, categorize and interpret the literary meanings of various environments. Moreover, by examining "Ecocriticism," an approach that emphasizes the role of the natural environment in literature, students will be able to recognize and use important environmental concepts in their own critical writing.
