Description of Course
English 110 is the study of twentieth-century poetry and short fiction and of the principles and practice of expository composition. A student will learn to read with a knowledgeable awareness of the relation of technique and form to meaning. Through immersion in the best of Western literature, and through the expression of interpretative and evaluative responses, a student will move toward cultural literacy and the ideal of universal public discourse.
Written Assignments: Students will complete three written assignments (of about 600 words each) and one longer take-home essay (of about 1500 words)
