Class Description

Using short works and novels, this course explores both the artistic and intellectual range of modern and contemporary fiction as well as particular structural and stylistic patterns that have developed over time. It also requires students to analyze and discuss these works orally and in writing. We will spend the majority of time in class going over the works; keeping up with reading is essential. Students should be prepared to read at least 100 pages a week.
