EN 366 - Modern U.S. Literature (1900-1945)
(3 cr.) The early 20th-century movement known as Modernism was an exhilarating time when the Western world's artists and thinkers were exploring how to represent human experience authentically. In the context of U.S. contributions to this era, students investigate questions of aesthetic innovation (especially in poetry), literary subgenres, popular vs. high culture, and national and ethnic identity (including the Harlem Renaissance). Representative authors might include Cather, Frost, Hammett, Hemingway, Hurston, Larsen, Stein, Stevens, Toomer and Yezierska. Prerequisite: one course from EN level 200; Every Other Year, Fall
