Course Description

We shall read a variety of short fictions by “modernist” and “postmodernist” writers. In reading these fictions, we will not only ask questions about fictional form, but also raise questions about “modernism” and “postmodernism,” place these texts in a literary and historical perspective, and examine how they have been read and re-read by critics.
