HENA03638U  MA-course: Short fiction and American Regionalism 1890-1925

Volume 2013/2014
Content
The subject of this course is the short fiction of late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century America. We will explore stories and three short novels set in New England, the West, the South, and the Midwest, texts that are just as concerned with representing distinctly regional landscapes, communities, and histories as individual human dramas. Some of the authors considered include Kate Chopin, Charles Chesnutt, Mary Austin, Willa Cather, and Sherwood Anderson. The pensum also includes contemporary criticism in the field.
