semester two



second semester course outlines

ENG3U1 (University)

ENG3C1 (College)



An Introduction

 

Throughout the course, we will be exploring famous - and infamous - outlaws in literature and the real world to get a better understanding of who they are, why they behave the way they do, and how their stories speak to us and inform how we understand and act in our own lives.  It is a voyage of discovery that will take us across centuries, continents, and literary forms as we study the lives of bikers, pirates, gunslingers, gangsters, outsiders, mavericks, evil geniuses, antiheroes, and outliers - characters that we love to hate and hate to love.   

 

We will be looking at poetry, novels, songs, magazines, newspapers, webpages, blogs, short stories, art, graphic novels, comics, animation, films, television, radio, plays, scripts, and advertising to find answers and provide us with material as we write and create works of poetry, prose, non-fiction and produce audio and visual materials.  Links will be provided on this site as we go along, so check back here often - especially if you have missed a class - for assignments, background information, extra information, links to relevant sources, and copies of handouts.
