LITERARY FAME   [Archived Catalog]
2020-2021 Greensburg Campus Catalog


Minimum Credits: 3
Maximum Credits: 3
This course investigates the creation of literary fame: how particular authors, literary works, characters, and even particular lines and phrases became famous and stayed in circulation in English-speaking culture, and why they dropped out of circulation. In part, then, this is an investigation of canonicity, not concerned with abstract ideas of what makes works of literature great so much as investigating the cultural mechanisms and patterns by which works and lines establish themselves in culture.
