Abstract

This course is supposed to introduce the 3rd-year students to some of the most influential works of the Anglophone literature, certainly without laying a claim to a full overview. It builds on General English in the previous years, but shifts the focus to literary analysis. This class also complements the survey course in European and American literature, taught in Russian, by providing an opportunity for a closer examination of the original works written in English. The class consistently supports the program’s special attention to close reading of literary texts. Finally, the course is predicated on the students’ previous knowledge of literary theory and develops it in the way of comparing the essential terminology in the Anglo-Saxon and Russian traditions of literary criticism.
