About the course:
This course focuses on the development of modernity in America, and explores how modernist and other literatures have reflected, interrogated, and revised its narratives. Through selected readings of both canonical and less-known texts, this course enables you to explore the diversity, contradictions and dynamic energy of American literature from the beginnings of the twentieth century up until World War II, and to situate this literature in relation to tumultuous upheavals in society.
