EN 325 - American Modernisms


Credits: 3
A consideration of the multiple literary expressions of the American Modernist period (roughly 1900-1940), with particular attention to the aesthetic issues that preoccupied leading writers and critics, as well as the cultural formations and controversies that marked these years. Topics will include “high” modernism, modernist uses of realism, the Harlem Renaissance, Depression-era radicalisms, and “middlebrow” paradigms (e.g., magazine fiction or hard-boiled detective fiction).
Prerequisites: completion of the Introductory Requirement.
