Welcome Dr. Howe's Course Pages!


"I serve myself best, as reader, when I both honor an author's offering for what it is, in its full 'otherness' from me, and take an active critical stance against what seem to me its errors or excesses. We are pursuing here an ethics of self-culture in narrative, an ethics that entails both surrender and refusal. [...] To me the most important of all critical tasks is to participate in--and thus to reinforce--a critical culture, a vigorous conversation. [...] [L]earning to talk well about such matters is both the best defense against censorship programs and the best encouragement to artists to meet us at the highest possible ethical level[.]"


--Wayne C. Booth, The Company We Keep
