This course is designed as an introduction to U.S. literature in the twentieth century. Though this class is regarded as a survey course, we will aim for depth rather than breadth. The writings will come from several traditions in American writing - The Harlem Renaissance, Modernism, Post Modernism, African American and Native American, to name five. Not only will we be looking at works of literature in relationship to these traditions, we will explore them as texts about human behavior and experience.
