What is the point of doing an English / Literature major? Why study literature at university? What should be gained from it? Should there even be a literature major at university?
What does the ideal undergrad Lit curriculum look like? Should we study the greeks (and romans)? (personally I think yes.) Should we read according to periods, movements, authors, or some other arbitrary restriction (like literature of the American West or incarceration literature)? What is required reading for a student who takes ~12 courses of in-depth study?
