Section 001

British Renaissance Literature
Spenser and Milton

Feisal Mohamed

This course will focus on two texts with which all serious students of literature should acquaint themselves: Edmund Spenser�s Faerie Queene and John Milton�s Paradise Lost. These are not only two great epic poems by two of the greatest of English poets; they also provide fascinating insight into the complex concerns of England�s tumultuous sixteenth and seventeenth centuries: the impact of continental Renaissance thought, the institution of Reformed religion, and the location of political authority.

Film Genres: Avant-Garde, Documentary, and Narrative
Classical Hollywood Film

Mike Schoenecke

For the 1st Summer 2006, English 3388 will study award winning films so that we can gain an understanding of what makes Hollywood films great and how they communicate. By learning how the selected films communicate, we will gain a better understanding of how all films communicate. We will lay out contemporary Hollywood�s most important and typical narrative strategies (which are in most respects the same as those in use during the 1930s) and then examine recent films to show how those strategies are used in practice. To accomplish these tasks, we will consider film language, the director's goals, and, when appropriate, the cultural and social milieu. We want to discover why Americans spent more than $22 billion on movie tickets alone last year. That's a lot of money just to hold hands, drink cokes, and eat popcorn in the dark.
