Approaches to Literature (2) National Taiwan University
This course trains students to construct independently reading responses that are both aesthetic and interpretive. In addition to analytical skills of reading the three major genres of literature, including short story, poetry and drama, the students will also learn how contexts are significant in appreciating a wide spectrum of meanings generated from a text. Each session will be composed of workshops, lectures and whole-class discussions.
By the end of the course, each student is expected to demonstrate intermediate skills of analyzing literary works in a process of reading and the synthesizing capacity of relating a text to contexts and other texts. One is also to learn how to share and explain one's ideas about literary works in writing, and defend them using concrete supports.
