Themes in Literature: Trauma Narratives - 2020-2021 Reading List
As our sessions will be online (synchronous) this term, English Theatre course is planned
as lectures on theatre and period texts, we will have more titles, and approximately 1 to
3 sessions for each of the periods / texts followed by class discussions.
The aim of this course is not only to teach you the basics of theatre and the periods of English theatre through various critical approaches, but it also aims to be able to show you examples from these different periods with a desire to understand the changes English theatre and English society go through.
This course introduces our students to concepts such as myth-making, archetypes, recurrent themes, motifs, and patterns that appear and reappear in the myths and epics of ancient Sumerian, Greek, Nordic and Celtic civilizations with the aim of familiarizing them with mythological stories and early literary texts, divinities and heroes, symbols, patterns and recurrent themes which are borrowed, reused and rewritten and continue to reappear in British Literature.
This course also offers a critical study of the epics and myths which are discussed in the
context of various theories such as Feminist Criticism and Ecocriticism. Students learn how to
approach myths, epics, and culture critically and practice close reading.
As the 2020-2021 Fall Term will be online (synchronous), our 4- credit-sessions are planned as lectures which will be followed by discussions.
