Cursusdoelen
This course focuses on the way novels are received and adapted. Adapting may refer to film or later reworkings, but also to the response of readers over time. At the very least students should be able to produce coherent interpretations of selected texts and films which are free from factual and logical errors. Ideally they should be able to articulate a personal response based on detailed observation in a broad context, discriminating where relevant between possible critical approaches.
