Literature (ENG)

Tidewater Community College offers a number of literature courses, most of which can be used, once you pass ENG 112, as your English or humanities electives.

ENG 241 and 242 comprise our American literature sequence. In American literature, you will read everything from the story of Pocahantas in John Smith's own words to Lorraine Hansberry's play about a black family living in New York.

Cross the Atlantic and you will read the greatest tales from the British Isles in ENG 243 and 244. Join Beowulf in his battle with that supernatural monster Grendel, learn the Wif of Bath's secret recipe for marrying five husbands, watch Satan tempting Eve with the forbidden fruit, pile up the dead as Hamlet cleanses Denmark, and seize the day with Keats and Shelley.

Other literature courses offered are ENG 248, Contemporary African-American Women Writers; ENG 251-252,Survey of World Literature; and ENG 276, Southern Literature.
