EN-UY 3814W The Environment and Literature

4 Credits
Nature as an inspiration for writers is not new. Concern for the environment, both indoors and out-of-doors, is not new. Recently, however, the critical discipline of ecocriticism has emerged as a way to study the relation between the environment and poetry, drama, fiction, and non-fiction drawn from the traditional literary canon. This course will study some of those works and the many implications of this relationship. Works of art may supplement the readings.

Prerequisite(s): Completion of EXPOS-UA 1 or EXPOS-UA 4
Note: Satisfies a humanities and social sciences elective.
