ENGL 366

World Literature Written in English
A study of writers from English-speaking countries (e.g., Canada and Australia) whose works and national literary traditions are not covered in the standard British-American literary curriculum, and of those writers (e.g., Indian and Nigerian) whose native language is not English, but who have chosen to write in it to reach a wide international audience. Some attention is paid to the political implications of such choices and to the distinctive linguistic and rhetorical features of such works. This course is repeatable for a maximum of 12 credits.
