English 45C will offer a survey of major texts in British and American literature from about 1880 until 1950. Thanks to Lyn Hejinian, this class will provide a distinctive opportunity. Students admitted to her 143B/1 course will also enroll in this section of 45C, and she will contour many assignments to the English 45C syllabus. And she and I will attend and be present in both classes. Our ambition is to dramatize how reading and writing can mutually inform one another.
