WEEK FOUR: ANATOMY OF A NOVEL

A two week discussion on the nuts and bolts of writing and reading fiction, this lecture series will define for student the lens through which we will analyze and interpret literature for the remainder of the semester. Each day will focus on a different element of fiction and will be supported through examples and group activities.
