ENGL 581 -- Autumn Quarter 2005

Creative Writer as Critical Reader Shields MW 9:30-11:20

This course will look at many lyric essays and several self-reflexive documentary films as a way to consider "reality"-based art and "reality"-hunger in a variety of media: the autobiographical impulse, the meditative gesture, self-conscious blurring of the difference between person and persona, plasticity of form, writerly risk, readerly excitement, emotional urgency and intensity.
