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, Morrison, and Erdrich. This will be a discussion class led by the students. Two papers and a final project.
