Writing Intensive Course Information

English 2000: Myth in Literature
sub sub title: Myth and Fairy Tales in literature by women.

What can myth or fairy tale say that other kinds of stories don’t? What do they allow a writer of literary fiction to do? This course surveys how a range of women writers have used myth and fairy tales in literary fiction from the 19th century to today, often as a means of commenting on the societies in which they lived and the roles of women in them. We will read the source material along with the literary work, including fairy tales and indigenous and classical mythology, and explore the writers’ backgrounds, the techniques of literary fiction that they used, and the historical context of each of these books. Writers/books include Mary Shelley, Frankenstein (English); Charlotte Bronte, Jane Eyre (Anglo-Irish); Louise Erdrich, Tracks (Anishinaabe); Helen Oyeyemi, Boy, Snow, Bird (British-Nigerian)Ali Smith, Girl Meets Boy (Scottish); and Alexis Wright, The Swan Book (Aboriginal Australian).
