Type SEMINAR
Course Description Prerequisites: Sign up through the "SR Seminar" section of myBarnard. Enrollment limited to Barnard senior English majors. Romance is the most persistent and widespread kind of writing in the west, from high culture to low, from Shakespeare to the grocery store checkout line, yet it fits awkwardly into the critical modes we encounter in the university. This seminar explores the form from antiquity to recent film, including Ovid's Metamorphoses, medieval romance, Spenser's Faerie Queene, Shakespeare's Winter's Tale, Aphra Behn's Oroonoko, and the film Priscilla Queen of the Desert. One brief paper (two to three pages) per week in the first six weeks of term, followed by a substantial seminar paper on a text of each student's choosing.
