(3 credits – TG) 3 hours lecture
As we examine a variety of literary texts - past and present - we will explore a women's literary tradition which until recently, has been overshadowed by the 'master' pieces of a male literary tradition. Readings from both literary and critical works will assist us, as we examine the question of "tradition" itself and women's place within and outside that tradition. At the same time, we will ask some difficult and challenging questions about gender, the self, and society.
