About this Unit
This unit involves the close reading of literary texts to explore concepts about meaning-making including the use of language, narrative form, and issues of genre. The unit asks questions about the role and function of literature. For example: is literature's purpose to entertain readers, to provide them with emotional release, to represent the world, or to allow people to make meaning from their experience? The primary texts span three genres - fiction, poetry and drama. Students will learn about the different ways in which these literary forms are constructed and the contrasting ways in which they represent reality.
