Welcome to English 10: Introduction to Literary Theory or “The Monster in the Mirror” from summer session A, 2014.
Formally, this class is an introduction to literature and how we, as scholars, read it. Thematically, this class addresses figures of monstrosity and strangeness, the unknown and the seeming unknowable and asks how literature shows us ourselves as monstrous and the monsters as not so different from us.
