ENGL 329 - Modern American Fiction

(3 credits)
Prerequisite: ENGL 203 and ENGL 234
This course examines American fiction from 1900 to 1945, an era in which writers moved from the tradition of realistic fiction to the radical reinvention of literature in an effort to grapple with technological change, transformations in gender and racial norms and the traumas of World War I and the Great Depression. Authors studied might include Kate Chopin, Jack London, Henry James, Gertrude Stein, Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Zora Neal Hurston, William Faulkner and John Steinbeck.
