College offers a number of literature courses, most
of which can be used, once you pass ENG 112, as your English
or humanities electives.
ENG 241 and 242 comprise our American literature sequence.
In American literature, you will read everything from the
story of Pocahantas in John Smith's own words to Lorraine
Hansberry's play about a black family living in New York.
Cross the Atlantic and you will read the greatest tales
from the British Isles in ENG 243 and 244. Join Beowulf
in his battle with that supernatural monster Grendel, learn
the Wif of Bath's secret recipe for marrying five husbands,
watch Satan tempting Eve with the forbidden fruit, pile
up the dead as Hamlet cleanses Denmark, and seize the day
with Keats and Shelley.
