|LITR 221 - SURVEY OF AMERICAN LITERATURE II|
(Formerly LITR 218) In this class we will examine American literature from the late 19th century to the present. Beginning roughly from the Realistic and Naturalistic writers of the post-civil war period up through the Modern and Post-modern eras, we will try to consider what kinds of stories Americans wrote about themselves and how we should interpret these texts. We will read one novel, one drama, poetry, short fiction, and perhaps some non-fiction. We want to consider these texts in their own right and as products of a grander American literary tradition that we can trace back to the 19th century and beyond.
