LAWS 411 - LAW AND THE LITERARY IMAGINATION
This course examines the field of law and literature. We will use available bibliographic resources and selected texts to examine the issues and approaches dominant in critical discussions among scholars and jurists. We will examine such traditional concerns of law and literature as the influence of law on literature through the figure of the lawyer, the theme of justice and the metaphor of the trial. Other emergent areas of inquiry to be explored include such concerns as the function of interpretation in law and literature, the literary analysis of legal texts, and first amendment issues in author-subject relations.
