“The aim of every artist is to arrest motion, which is life, by artificial means and hold it fixed so that a hundred years later, when a stranger looks at it, it moves again since it is life."

William Faulkner is America’s most acclaimed modernist writer.  Our focus will be on the major works how his own inexhaustible “little postage stamp of native soil,” mythic Yoknapatawpha County, arrested motion.  A native Mississippian, Faulkner’s fictional world charts and probes the turmoil of race, class, and gender politics of 20th century America. For Faulkner, “The past is never dead. It’s not even past.”

Texts "Read, read, read.  Read everything—trash, classics, good and bad, and see how they do it.  Just like a carpenter who works as an apprentice and studies the master.  Read! You’ll absorb it. Then write.”  (William Faulkner)

19290 LIT3202 Death and Dying Face to Face Instruction (P) M 06:00 PM - 08:50 PM Not Online

Description

This course will approach death through a variety of literary genres—fiction, drama, memoir, and non-fiction. The readings were chosen to provide as broad a sampling as a finite semester can bear: murder, suicide, AIDS, stroke, profound illness will be our subjects along with the responses that death provokes—grief, denial, mystification, regret, and compassion. Throughout the term, Dr. Nuland’s How We Die will provide a medical point of reference for such deaths; and Mary Roach’s outrageous Stiff will help us dispose of the bodies.

The class relies on discussion to analyze the readings along with a variety of writing and research assignments. Occasional quizzes and short presentations are possible. There will also be a final exam.

(3 credits; PR 1102)
