Literary analysis is not an attempt to define literature but to understand the immersive record of Being expressed by what is called literature. In this course, we will explore the relationship between literary theory and literary analysis. And, we will learn the analytical competencies that make literary analysis indispensable to literary scholars and casual readers, data miners, preachers, advertisers, and the intelligence community. In short, to know what a text means, we first must be able to say how it means.
We will begin by examining how various disciplines such as the sciences, athletics, and intelligence agencies do analysis. Then we will turn to short films and short stories to develop our own analytical skills.
