The goal of this class is for students to question how literature can illuminate concepts of gender and sexuality, and to think, read, and write critically about those categories in literature, moving away from the notion that they are natural and fixed and toward the idea that they are historically specific and shifting social constructions that require analysis and close study. Still doing a wonderful job marketing off-beat books to catalogs and non-book retailers.

How do young students come to identify themselves as good writers? Within the email itself include name, affiliation, 250-word abstract, and any other relevant information. All expression has its own form, even when the form is a deliberate quest of formlessness. (The automatic writing cultivated by the surrealists, for instance, suffers from the excessive formalism of the unconscious mind and is far more stereotyped than the poetry of the Neoclassicist Alexander Pope .) Form simply refers to organization, and critics who attack form do not seem always to remember that a writer organizes more than words.

When he aban- dons the beautiful Senta because he believes her false, she throws herself into the sea to prove herself faithful until death, and her love and death redeems him. Another description of a Fantasy Novel is any book that contains unrealistic settings, or magic, often set in a medieval universe, or possibly involving mythical beings or supernatural forms as a primary element of the plot, theme, or setting.
