Jerz EL312 (Literary Criticism)

Keats, ''Ode on a Grecian Urn''

In Keesey, Appendix A. We will read this in class.

You may wish to start reading Appendix B, ''Benito Cereno'' and Postmortem for a Postmodernist.

If you have not read The Tempest before, you should read it before we start discussing it.

Melville, ''Benito Cereno''

In Keesey, Appendix B. This is a long story, written in a style that will require some concentration. Don't leave this until the last minute.

Shakespeare, The Tempest

If you are not already familiar with this play, you will need to read it or watch a video in order to fully understand the assigned critical readings.

Anonymous, ''Everyman''

I will try to get a copy of the script the SHU production used. In the meanwhile, here is a slightly modified version of a copy posted at Fordham U's website.
