Course Description

Please refer to the course schedule for course days, time, room location, prerequisites and possible cross-listings:

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.

Grading Policy

Three papers (4-5 pages each, typed), 25% each; One longer paper (6-8 pages, typed), 25%. Attendance essential, only one unexcused absence allowed. Excessive absences will affect your grade.
