Chaucer

Catherine S. Cox, Chaucer, Spring 2018

Course Description:

EngLit 1116 is a major-author seminar designed to offer interested students an opportunity to study critically Chaucer's Canterbury Tales, along with other shorter pieces and excerpts. We will examine the texts in their historical, cultural, intellectual, and literary contexts, and consider a variety of critical approaches. You will acquire a solid knowledge of the literary accomplishments for which Chaucer is known, and build an informed understanding of his significance to literary history and critical practice; you will also develop skills in close reading, critical thinking, and effective speaking and writing. Enrollment in EngLit 1116 is selective, and presupposes academic skills appropriate for upper-division college work, as well as an active and open-minded interest in literature and its relationship to the larger world.
