Prior to completing this discussion read the Critical Literary Theories handout.
In the Critical Literary Theories handout four different kinds of critical approaches are presented. Consider which of the four theories you find most interesting as a means for understanding literature. Your post should be at least 300 words in length. The minimum word count does not include references. Choose two of those critical approaches and address the points below.
Prior to beginning your initial post read the handout How to Ask an Open-Ended Question. In addition review your initial response to the Clugston (2014) quote from Week One: There is a powerful curiosity about human relationships and how to cope in the world in which we find ourselves. (Section 1.1 para. 2).
Reflect: In this discussion you will reflect on what you learned in the course by practicing the skill of asking an open ended academic question. This exercise will allow you to engage in a discussion you create with your peers. It also helps you to ask your own questions about literature which can serve as a gateway to initiating critical analysis. Think of an open-ended question about literature that you would like to ask in order to challenge your classmates to reflect more deeply. Also reflect on your initial response to the Clugston quote in Week 1 Discussion 1. How have your feelings about literature changed or remained the same?
