Women in Literature

English 307 critically examines the tradition in women's writing, deconstructs the pervasive images of women in literature, and analyses the way in which women use language to define their experiences. A variety of works from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries by Canadian, British, and American women will be studied, including three novels—Jane Eyre, Wide Sargasso Sea, and The Raven—a play by Caryl Churchill; poetry by Adrienne Rich, Emily Dickinson, Sylvia Plath, and Bronwen Wallace; and essays by Adrienne Rich and Virginia Woolf.
