BA programme in English Philology
3rd year, 5th semester
Assoc.Prof. Dr. Zelma Catalan (lectures and seminars)
Assist. Prof. Maria Dimitrova (seminars)
The course aims to equip students with the theoretical foundations and the practical skills needed in the analysis of the style of literary works. The lectures introduce students to various approaches to style and its conceptual foundation, to the specifics of the language of literary prose and poetry, to the methodology and the tools of stylistic and narratological analysis. The seminars are strongly practice- and student-oriented and aim to stimulate discussion and independent thinking. The texts for classwork cover a range of genres and illustrate the major stylistic trends in various periods in the history of literatures in English. On completing the course, students will be capable of critically appreciating the choice of stylistic means and devices in literary texts. The learning outcomes include both receptive and productive skills which can be applied to non-literary genres as well.
The course is taught in English. Attendance to the seminars is mandatory. Assessment is based on class participation and quiz results (20%), one analytical paper (10%), one written test (10%) and a final oral exam (60%).
