AML 3041.0M02: American Literature II (Angley)

Spring 2018

PR: Grade of C (2.0) or better required in ENC 1102

This course surveys American literature(s) from 1865 to the present, a time when literary texts and traditions in the United States increased in kind and in number. We have many texts to choose from, and any choices exclude other choices. However, we will read a variety of texts in an attempt to become acquainted with the represented voices, voices that reflect the social, cultural, and ideological influences of their place in history. Some of the voices we will listen to have been anthologized widely, but others have only recently been included in the "canon" of American literature, a "canon" that continues to evolve. While we will play close attention to literary movements and genres as well as particular times and places in our history, we will look also at how gender, race, class, religion, culture and politics have influenced the formation of the texts we read. An understanding of context is necessary to our understanding and interpretation of literary expression during the turbulent times of increasing urbanization, great wars, economics, social, and political struggle and conflict, technological advances, and the alienation and fragmentation of our "modern" and "postmodern" world.

Her texts will be situated in their historical, cultural, literary, and political contexts, and students will examine the transformative power of Morrison’s contributions to contemporary American literature. Morrison’s writing demands that students become actively involved in her project “to avert the critical gaze from the racial object to the racial subject; from the described and imagined to the describers and imaginers; from the serving to the served.”
