ENGL439F - Major American Writers after 1865: Faulkner and His Literary Heirs
An intensive study of the career of William Faulkner and four of the writers--all women, in this case--who refigured his legacy. We will read lots of big novels, four by Faulkner, as well as works by Welty, Silko, Walker, and Morrison. This will be a discussion class led by the students. Two papers and a final exam.
Two English courses in literature or permission of the department.
