Stylistics

This course explores the analytical and creative possibilities of language. Through both a theoretical discussion and practical application, we will examine how basic elements of writing, such as diction - including figurative language - syntax, structure, and rhetorical style, express and modulate meaning in a variety of writing forms. Students will analyze, create, and critique imaginative pieces, including advertising copy, written speeches, song lyrics, technical articles, short fiction poetry, drama, and literary nonfiction.
