The title and description of this great course is misleading. There is very little at all regarding the role of the author. Also, much of the material was completely ruined for me by the professor's pre-occupation with his own Christian worldview. The lectures are less about the "essence of literature and the role of the author" than they are about his own (inaccurate) views of many philosophers and a lot of bizarre Christian apologetics. I wouldn't recommend this course to someone looking for a general history of literary theory.
