This course examines the literary roots of iconic monsters like vampires, werewolves, invisible creatures, gigantic animals, mad scientists, mummies, and zombies. We'll read the earliest appearances of these monsters as innovative writers unleash them from folklore and science into horrifying fiction. We'll also try to understand the many meanings they've acquired in Western culture. Authors may include Alexis Tolstoy, J. Sheridan LeFanu, Robert Louis Stevenson, Rudyard Kipling, and Mary E. Wilkins. Frequent writing and discussion. The writing load for this course is a minimum of 12 pages of formal revised writing.

“The green light at the end of Daisy’s dock.” Wilson and the history cycle. “So it goes.” Morrison and re-memory. The moderns. The Beats. And countless stories of war and the trauma of surviving it. These are a few of the ideas and perspectives offered through the literature of the 20th and 21st centuries—years of volatility and change. Our course will study the American literary experience from 1900 to the present. By reading and analyzing the literature of Faulkner, Hemingway, Stein, O’Connor, Baldwin, and Morrison, among others, we will explore the ever-changing landscape of American literature and consider its influence upon the social and political fabric of the nation. The writing load for this course is a minimum of 15 pages of formal revised writing.
