    19647 LIT6097 Studies in Cont Fiction Face to Face Instruction (P) M 06:00 PM - 08:50 PM Unavailable

    LIT 6097 is a graduate-level course that will act as a survey of a variety of forms of contemporary fiction, from the short story to the novella to the novel, with an emphasis on point of view. We will focus on the craft and composition of each piece with a focus on P.O.V., studying first, second, and third person points of view in past, present, and future tense. We will also study degrees of omniscience, from omniscient to limited omniscience to roving limited omniscience. We will study the art of free indirect style with an eye on close third person points of view in contemporary fiction. We will look at the role that point of view plays in character likeability and reliable vs. unreliable narration. Finally, we will examine the pros and cons of conflating narrative voice with authorial voice, and the risks of ascribing the motivations of characters to their authors.
