World Lit 2120

  • All Early College students need to use Canvas on the College of Central Florida portal for all assignments and course information.


    Course Description

    This course emphasizes the study and consideration of the literary, cultural, and significance of selected classics of Western civilization from The Enlightenment to the present; the course includes the imposing works of Voltaire, Goethe, Elliot, Melville, Gogol, Kafka, and Marquez among others. Additionally, course work will include an introduction to the theoretical framework from Structuralism through Postmodernism so as to amplify criteria for critical analyses, metacognitive processes, and conscious constructivist principles.   

    Prerequisite:  ENC 1101; Co-requisite:  ENC 1102.  This course may be taken for credit without LIT 2110.

    Course Objective

    This course is designed to develop understanding of the historical traditions of literature from the Enlightenment to the present.  The course gives the student the opportunity to respond critically and personally to a variety of selected readings of the principle literary genres—fiction, poetry, and drama. This is a Gordon Rule course and partially satisfies SBE 6A-10.30.  The goal of LIT2120 is to enable students to become aware of and understand the broad spectrum of ideas and values that influence the movement of world literature and to use this understanding to evaluate ideas and values and arrive at their own aesthetics.
