ENG 420 - Seminar: Narrative Theory
This course will consider theories of narrative by focusing on the ways in which the media of orality, print, film and electronic text affect techniques and theories of narration. Subjects will range from Plato to postmodernism. We won’t simply read theory, but also apply theory to a wide range of narratives in different material media: print works by authors such as Mansfield, Wharton, Coetzee, Dostoevsky, D. F. Wallace, and Dr. Seuss; oral tales and jokes; video games; hypertext novels; television shows; advertisements; and films.
