LTRE 421 DeVry Week 6 Discussion

Poetry, drama, essays, and prose fiction are all made of words. Let’s begin by examining how prose differs from other genres of writing?

As the week progresses, we will explore the following questions:

  • How do setting, description, and plot contribute to theme?
  • How is character developed?
  • What is the role of the narrator (and the omniscient narrator)?
  • Why should we believe (or disbelieve) in the narrator’s ability to give us the truth?

Literary criticism requires one to look through, behind, beyond, underneath, and above the text. It requires skepticism, sensitivity to language, and a deep understanding of contextual issues. How might you apply the habits of the “well-tempered critic” to ordinary life? For example, is the news a literary text or a text that might be read critically? Is society a text? Are you yourself a text that might be scrutinized, “read,” and held up to critical inspection? Are the tools of the critic useful to business, ethics, family, work, and the self in society?
