Excellence in Literature :: English V: World Literature (Honors Option)

Excellence in Literature

English V: World Literature

What does World Literature cover?

World Literature: Enlish 5- Excellence in Literature by Janice CampbellWorld Literature is a college-prep literature survey course. Focus works, including novels, short stories, poems, and drama, have been selected for literary quality, and for their place in the historical development of literature. Context readings provide background information about the author, the historical time and place, and the literary and artistic context of the focus work.

Students will gain an understanding of the development of world literature and will practice the skills of close literary analysis through essays, approach papers, and other evaluative and creative writing. You may learn more about how I chose the literature for Excellence in Literature in this blog post.

World Literature is a challenging course, and I recommend it for older students (12th grade). You may wish to take longer than four weeks for each unit, or you may even decide to skip a unit or two (some parents may not wish to cover Inferno and Faust). Whatever you choose, your student will grow in many ways through the study of some of the greatest literary works from around the world.


By the end of the course, students will:

  • Possess a broad knowledge of significant works of world literature.
  • Have specific understanding of selected representative texts by major authors of the times and places studied.
  • Have a general understanding of the historical and cultural contexts of the works.
  • Be able to analyze literary texts and present thoughtfully developed ideas in writing.
  • Demonstrate competence in essay organization, style, and mechanics.
  • Demonstrate competence in the MLA style of source documentation
