Special Topic: Unreliable Narrators

ENGL 374
Spring 2018
Section: 01  
Certificates: Writing

An unreliable narrator may be devilish or deceitful, but any of us can become unreliable narrators when forced to confront and explain unpleasant truths. In this special topics course we will study the unreliable narrator in both fiction and nonfiction. We will examine how the subjectivity of all narrators gives them limited access to the truth, and how we can use this interesting psychological phenomenon in our own writing.
