There will be some texts on bspace.


This course will focus on texts that I think are indispensable for the study of modernism in English and in American literature.  It will be primarily lecture on Mondays and Wednesdays, although there will considerable efforts at discussion.  My emphasis will be on close reading rather than literary history, so papers also will require careful attention to specific passages.  There will be a mid-term and two essays required.  And regular attendance is mandatory.

Please note that this class will first meet on Monday, August 27; discussion sections will not start being held until Friday, August 31.
