Course Details

Honors English IV (242)

This course engages students in a rigorous study of master works  of British Literature. In addition to mature, scholarly analysis  of prose, poetry, and drama, this  course reinforces and builds upon previous study of literature and composition and invites the students to recognize the universal themes and concerns that transcend the boundaries of geography.  Assignments will focus on honing critical reading and fluid, analytical writing skills as well as help them make important connections to their own lives, current events, and the world in which they live. Some of the major works include Beowulf, Grendel, Doctor Faustus, Frankenstein, Picture of Dorian Gray, 1984, Brave New World, Hamlet, and a variety  of supplemental essays and poetry.
