This course will develop your ability to apply a critical approach to literary genres. More specifically, you will learn to recognize formulas and literary elements, and to analyze three different genres - detective/spy fiction, coming of age fiction, and “chick lit”. While these genres are often maligned by critics and labelled as trivial by some English literature academics, they are undoubtedly the most popular with the reading public. As you study the works selected for this course, you will learn to appreciate them or learn to understand them on new levels if you are already a fan.
