Instructor: Dr. Caroline (Kay) Picart

This introductory course enables students to wrestle with several fundamental problems that lie between critical theory, literature and philosophy.

Questions of interest include:

  • the nature of mimesis or representation;
  • the reader's relation to the text;
  • whether ethics matter in relation to the creation and reception of literature;
  • what is the nature of aesthetic pleasure;

  • what roles expression and emotion play in the generation and interpretation of texts;
  • and whether literary texts, as art objects, are independent of external relations and depend upon a unique system of internal relations, among other questions.
