Course Description

This foundational class will require students to read closely and analyze carefully a representative variety of prose, poetry, and drama. It will be a prerequisite for all second tier literature courses, as designated by each department. As a foundational literature course, UCLR aims to instruct students in the core conventions of literary studies, introducing them to key literary and critical terms, analytical skills, and genres of literature. This specific section of UCLR will examine ghosts in poetry, fiction, and drama, spanning from Ovid in the 1st Century to Jesymn Ward in the 21st. This course will prompt students to question what "work do ghosts and hauntings do in literature. As a class, we will endeavor to understand why ghosts continue to haunt literature today, especially in light of modernity's skepticism of the supernatural and the inexplicable.
