Sequels, Prequels, and Rewrites
ENGL 108
Fall 2009
Section: 01  

This course will take up the idea of rewrites in two ways. We will examine the way authors have taken up the works of others and sought to rewrite them or to construct sequels or prequels that recast those works in a new light. This focus will allow us to open up important issues in literary study such as intertextuality, originality, and authorship. But we will also engage in a host of exercises in writing and rewriting that will foster greater facility in writing and editing while also helping you "unpack" what is buried in the writing of others.

Essential Capabilities: Interpretation, Writing
This course will focus intensively on the interpretation of literary texts and on the practice of writing and rewriting your own (and others') critical work.
