"It is difficult to get the news from poems, yet men die miserably every day for lack of what is found there."

With rich and varied literary and writing courses, this program transforms students into close readers, insightful critics, and superior writers. Students analyze classical, medieval, British, American, Irish, African American, and modern literature; may select from a range of courses in major authors, special topics, or the practice of journalism; and try their hands at composing plays, songs, poems, and short stories under the tutelage of regular professors as well as noted visiting writers.
