A survey of the modernist period in British and Irish writing, with special attention given to some of the period’s central figures and works. Students should be prepared to read adventurously and to read a lot. We will attempt about a work (novel or volume of poems) per week, making a central exception for Joyce’s Ulysses, which will slow us to about a chapter per day.

Please note that this class will first meet on Monday, August 29; discussion sections will not start being held until Friday, September 2.
