EN 4190 - Literature and Orality: A Rhetorical Synthesis

A course that studies the oral basis of modern writing beginning with oral epics and continuing through Greek chirographic drama into the modern typographic novel. Works that present rhetorical backgrounds (Aristotle, Horace, Longinus) are reviewed to synthesize the rhetorical forms with the literature. Recent work on literacy theory is also examined along with the implications of this work for the written and spoken word.

Prerequisite: EN 1110 /EN 1120 , or EN 1140 , or EN 1150 .
