In this course students read works by and about women to explore the various ways their experience is depicted in literature. Contemporary literary theory dealing with women in literature focuses on certain topics that will guide the course: women and their work in the world; their ascribed place in the social construct; their sustaining friendships with other women; their different biographies or life paths; the distinctive female mind and how it finds expression in literature; and women and their relationships with men.
