ENGL 350 - Modern American Novel


This course explores ideas of modernism and post-modernism in American novels, considering ideas of moderism as both an era of literature and a style of writing.  What makes a piece of writing “modern” or “post-modern”?  How do we know?  Who decides?  We will discuss the idea of “the Great American Novel” and how marginalized writers are often excluded from consideration in that debate.
