Welcome to LITR100: Introduction to Literature. This class is offered for credit through Delhi Tech, though it is not necessary to take the class as such. Should you with to earn 3 college credits, please see the guidance office for the necessary paperwork.
This course is a survey of basic concepts in literature (including basic elements of fiction) as integrated in the various genres, including the novel, the play, the short story, and the poem. The purpose of this course is to develop students’ skills at reading and understanding not only the various forms literature takes, but also the variety of interpretive approaches available to the critic. My syllabus covers major work in Irish literature, so through the course of the semester, students will gain an appreciation for the historical periods of Irish literature and culture.
