This section of English 419, “Stranger Things,” will focus on mythic journeys and strange transformations in settings that range from the historical to the otherworldly. Texts include classics like Shakespeare’s Much Ado about Nothing and Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray, as well as contemporary U.S. writing about the legacies that haunt us still, for instance Suzan-Lori Parks’s Father Comes Home from the Wars (Parts 1, 2 & 3) and Jesmyn Ward’s Sing, Unburied, Sing, recipient of the 2017 National Book Award. A variety of shorter texts will be provided by the instructor.
English 419 fulfills two of the Discovery Program’s requirements: the Inquiry requirement and the Writing Intensive requirement. It also fulfills a core requirement for the B. A. in English Teaching and the B. A. degrees within the Literary Arts & Studies program (Literary Studies, Digital Language Arts, Professional and Technical Communications).
