Abstract: In this course we will read and analyze selected works of American fiction, poetry and drama published during the first half of the 20th Century (roughly 1890-1945).  We will begin with works that mark the transition from 19th century realism to modernism proper and continue with works that have come to define American modernism writ large.  In analyzing the selected works, we will pay attention not only to the unique particulars of each text but also to the work’s contribution to the modernist project and to the material conditions in which the work is grounded.  Probable authors include Eliot, Stevens, Wharton, Dos Passos, Fitzgerald, Hemingway, Faulkner, Cather, Hurston, and O’Neill. Prerequisites: Any 200-level literature course or permission from instructor.
