ENGL 220 (W) Prose Style (1)

A course about prose style in English for readers who wish to develop their skills in textual analysis and for writers who wish to develop confidence, fluency, and versatility in prose style. We will examine many models of published prose written for a variety of purposes (e.g., expressive, informative, persuasive, artistic) and audiences (e.g., literary, academic, professional, popular). We will analyze the surface structure of sentences in English, paying particular attention to the conventions of standard edited American English as they are reinterpreted in different social and cultural contexts.
