This course is designed to give students some basic practical as well as theoretical knowledge of the art of literary analysis. It will cover (or rather, touch upon) the fields of drama, poetry, and narrative, discuss literary criticism, editorial policies, and canon formation, besides introducing the key terminology that forms the basis of any kind of literary studies. All literature seminars build on this introductory class. Together, it and the lecture ”The History of British Literature” form the module ”Literature I”, which is recommended to be taken in the second semester.
