4. Course Description:

Although many survey courses now include works by women authors, that has not always been the case. We begin this course by reading Virginia Woolf’s text A Room of One’s Own, which provides a touchstone for our understanding as to why so many women writers are missing, or have been missing, from those survey courses. We will investigate the importance of tradition and history for women writers as we consider how women have been characterized in literature and as we read literature written by women. Genres we will read include a novel, poetry, short stories, expository writing and we will view several films.
