Taking a close look at individual texts and traditions, this course considers notions of Canada through literary representations of its people, languages, and landscapes, and through Canada's different models of verbal art (Aboriginal, African, European, and others). Texts studied may range from pre-contact indigenous myths, the diaries of early pioneers, novels of the immigrant condition, to French-Canadian works in translation. Traditions may include folklore, hip hop, the Anglo-American modernist literary tradition, and the contemporary, urban avant-garde.
Anti-requisite: Students who have taken ENGL 2B02 may not take this course for further credit.
Notes: ENGL 2B03 is strongly recommended in advance of 300 or 400 level ENGL Literature courses.
