This course is designed for students to have the opportunity to develop and enhance their listening and observation skills and their appreciation for good literature by viewing, discussing, and comparing the cinematic (movie) adaptations and representations of various popular, contemporary, and classic works of literature.Viewing film versions of various short stories, novels and plays that we read will provide students the chance to experience these worthwhile literary works in a medium that is more familiar and will allow for more complete understanding of, and appreciation for, the original, written form.
