Students will discuss novels, plays, poems, and essays that address the difficult issues of national rebuilding, the temptations of a new consumer culture, the devastations of numerous wars fought overseas, and encounters with European, Jewish, Latin American, and Asian immigrants. Whether comparing nineteenth-century Huckleberry Finn with twentieth-century Beloved or making sense of modern and postmodern literary playfulness, students will become thoughtful readers and writers.
