What's in this Guide

About this Guide!

This is a guide to support ENG 255: Women In Literature course which analyzes the image of women in literary works by female and/or male authors. The instructor will select one of several possible formats to follow, such as thematic (e.g., women as mothers, wives, mistresses, shrews, temptresses, and heroes). The class will discuss themes, characters, structure, imagery, and point of view, all in relation to women's roles.
