Introduction to Literary Theory and Criticism is a highly philosophical English course that focuses on methods of evaluating literature. During the discussions, Professor Glaser focuses on an array of topics ranging from feminism to Freudian psychoanalysis to politics to ethics.
The highlights of this course were the in-class discussions, from which I learned much about psychology and the role of the author in society. In this class, one shares ideas with his or her peers, which is highly beneficial when talking about literary theory and criticism.

Advice for students:
My advice to students taking this course is to do the reading! It is essential to understanding the concepts that Professor Glaser covers, such as new criticism and structuralism, and the text gives diverse, insightful points of view.
