CRWR 287 - Voice, Mood, and Tone

FC ARHU WINT
4 credits
All of us have experienced tonal differences between literary works, but how do we describe them and come to understand how and why writers make specific choices about conveying their subject matter? What might an author gain or lose by choosing to tell her story in the first person or a limited third person? This course introduces students to diverse contemporary authors as it disambiguates literary voice, mood, and tone from one another and explores the choices authors make about using them. Through imitative exercises and longer, workshopped pieces students will try out multiple ways to tell their own stories.
