“Harmony and Clash”: English 206 is an introduction to the nature and interpretation of literary works and to reading and writing critically about literature. We will use the course to examine how novels, stories, poetry, and memoirs have used music as subject and form in literature. Evaluation will be based on quizzes, two short papers, a midterm and a final exam.
