Women's Voices in Literature
Terms : 1
Grades : 11, 12, PG
Recognizing that there are many strong and interesting women characters in literature, this course focuses on works that highlight women’s perspectives on their lives and their relationships. Through plays, novels, and short stories, we will examine how women of different times approach their individual circumstances. The works include Emma (1815), by Jane Austen, A Doll’s House (1879) by Henrik Ibsen, Tess of the D’Urbervilles (1891) by Thomas Hardy, and short stories by some contemporary authors and others such as Kate Chopin, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Zora Neale Hurston, Tillie Olsen, and Eudora Welty. If there is time, we will explore some poetry.
