This course examines and explores literature from an oral performance perspective. Literary selections include the short story, poetry, drama and nonfiction. Emphasis is placed on the development of the human voice and the use of bodily movement as instruments to be used by the interpreter of literature. Incorporating the study of social and cultural contexts of literature is a primary part of a pre-performance analysis and complements the oral interpretation.
