11396 AML3041 American Literature Ⅱ Face to Face Instruction (P) M,W,F 01:30 PM - 02:20 PM Not Online

In his 1916 poem “A Pact,” seminal modernist Ezra Pound stages a reconciliation between himself and Walt Whitman, his so-called “pig-headed father” whom he has “detested long enough”: Pound declares, “let there be commerce between us.” This survey of American literature from 1865 to the present examines such “commerce” between the modes of writing that have come to define the modern American literary tradition. We will examine the ways Mark Twain and Henry James expanded upon the literary realism defined during Victorianism and American Romanticism, and how writers such as Charles Chesnutt, Frank Norris, Zitkala Sa, and Charlotte Perkins Gilman took those expansions further. We will then turn our attention to the experiments of modernism and postmodernism, considering how, for instance, Moore, Williams, Faulkner, Hurston, McKay, Brooks, Hayden, Miller, Baraka, and Rich challenged our very understanding of what we might call “American realities” while insisting on the plurality of that phrase. Finally, we will read a selection of contemporary poems (Harjo, Lee, Sharif) and short fiction (Lahiri, Díaz) to inquire into the ways that writers today continue to make and re-make American literature.

20029 AML3273 Beat Lit & Mid-century Writers World Wide Web (W) Not Online

Mid-Century American society was prosperous for some but also severely constrained by institutionalized racial segregation, McCarthyism and the red scare, and rampant sexism and sexual repression. Young American writers often positioned their work squarely against those restraints. What we now call the Beat Generation in many ways epitomized such literary repudiation. This course will examine the radical poetry and prose of seminal Beat writers such as Burroughs, Corso, Ferlinghetti, Ginsberg, Kerouac, and Snyder as well as lesser-known works by women beat writers (di Prima, Jones, Waldman). We will also read key works of writers who inspired the Beats (Blake, Whitman, Williams, Duncan, Rexroth) and follow lines to the contemporaneous literary endeavors of confessionalism, Black Arts poetry, and the New York School. Throughout, we will pay attention to the legacy of the Beats and their mid-century contemporaries, locating influences in present-day culture.
