ENGL 2154 Introduction to Adolescent Fiction (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

First of all, what is a young adult? And second of all, what is a hero? We will be delving into both of these issues, as well as the relationship between them. We will be looking at heroes who function in real worlds and some who function in fantasy worlds. We will attempt to assess the impact of heroes in contemporary life, especially in relation to the young adults who need them. And are there any more heroes for our young adults? In what ways do female heroes differ from male heroes?
