Stanford’s English department features a well-rounded curriculum that explores the big picture of literature’s development from the Middle Ages to the present day. Classes feature lively exploration and discussion of key literary themes, movements, and innovations. Your courses will also teach you and test your abilities for critical thinking, analyzing literature in poetry, narrative, and methodology. Courses offered include a historical sequence and a pre-1800 course. The department’s website says students will explore things like “How has the idea of theater changed from the York Corpus Christi play (15th c.) to Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman (1949).” Once you’ve finished the core classes in an English major, which introduce students to a large body of knowledge and fundamental skills, you can continue on to a concentration in literature. The literature concentration bestows a wide range of knowledge to its students: historical development of British, American, and Anglophone literatures, and a variety of critical methods to interpret texts. The concentration emphasizes the study of literary forms, genres, and textual analysis theories.
