Welcome to EL 150, "Introduction to Literary Study."
The course website is located at http://blogs.setonhill.edu/DennisJerz/EL150. I will update the online syllabus periodically, so the printout I gave you is only for your convenience today. The offical version of the syllabus is the online version (though I will notify you in advance of any significant changes).
Topics for today:
- Review syllabus.
What is literary study?
How does it differ from high school English?
Discuss summary vs. analysis (see "Writing that Demonstrates Thinking Ability").
