ENG IV: Women & Literature

Women and Literature will examine several female writers’ lives and their texts. The course will focus on how these texts reflect the female experience and the empowerment and/or disempowerment of the female in literature and culture. We will also focus on the female’s struggle for identity and self-awareness in a traditionally patriarchal society. Lastly, we will bring these themes into modern literature and society to see how they have or have not changed. Texts may include such works as Jane Eyre, The Wide Sargasso Sea, Frankenstein, The Handmaid’s Tale, The Color Purple and Twilight.
