Course Description

This is basically a course from Whitman to DeLillo, from 19th-century realism to 20th-Century post-modernism. We will read a wide range of writers, from the obvious canonical figures to the not so obvious marginalized voices, and examine how recent American Literature is being reshaped and rethought.
