Fantasy Literature for the Rhetoric Stage
One-semester course. This course provides students with an opportunity to explore and discuss fantasy literature authors and their writings. Students will develop the ability to discern motivations, intentions, and perspectives of writers from the past and present. During the class students will read multiple writings from select recognized and celebrated authors of the genre. Students will build upon this foundation by exploring, comparing, and evaluating writings from an approved fantasy author’s work to an author that has been studied in the class. As a result of completing this course, students will: identify fantasy literature writers and their works; consider fantasy literature as a building block for strong character and moral strength; analyze and evaluate the themes found in fantasy literature and identify aspects of good versus evil within the book; relate the plot, characters, and situations to those found in their own world; and compare and evaluate the writing of an author not covered in class to the works previously read.
