American Literature to 1865
This class meets for lectures Mon. and Wed., 11:00 to 11:50 (Gilmer 117), and for
discussion Fri., 10:00 to 10:50 (Cabell 323) or 11:00 to 11:50 (Wilson 215).
A survey of American literature from early colonial writings to some of the
works that comprise the American Renaissance. We will consider a broad
range of genres and modes of writing, including (but not limited to):
colonial theory, ethnography, autobiography, fiction, essays, poetry.
A central concern of the course will be the question of what constitutes
American literature; or, indeed, whether such a question even makes sense.
