課程概述 Course Description

Selected Fiction is an elective for second-year students and above. This course builds on Introduction in Literature 1 (fiction). This course will take into account several aspects of Narrative Fiction Studies and story telling by way of major writers (in English) over the past two centuries, including: 1: Narrative – the story itself and History of the novel 2: Narration – how the story is told 3: Narrator – the story teller 4: Narratology – the art of story telling. 5: Criticism - the different genres of fiction writing and criticism Students will first examine narrative elements of fiction—the story itself—and will examine such structural elements as characterization, plot structures (i.e. linear, episodic, etc.) and dramatic conflict. In addition students will explore a major school of critical thought aligned to the assigned reading such as selections from Aspects of the Novel by E. M. Forester. Next, students will explore aspects of fictional narration and narrator and study voice, tone, narrator reliability, denouement and the sense of an ending. Finally, narratology will be investigated in relation to what students have read up to this point.
