Interpretation in Fiction: The Reader in the Text
ENGL 249
Fall 2010 not offered

Detective novels, classic existential narratives, and postmodern fictions share a fascination with the process of interpretation. Their protagonists read clues, solve puzzles, and confront mysteries. In this course we read examples of all three as versions of the human search for understanding.
