Hours & Credits
Students are introduced to a range of literary text-types important to New Zealand' s construction of a sense of identity. Novels, plays and poems are well known genres through which a society inscribes stories about itself, but the paper will also investigate other story-telling media, such as films and graphic novels. There is a strong emphasis on written style, reader-response, and genre analysis (especially of language in translation across media).
