ENGL-250 American Expatriate Writers
This course will explore the fiction and poetry of some of the principal American Expatriate writers, a tradition which has emerged as a rich vein in American Literature. In particular, we will investigate how their perception of America, coupled with their interaction with foreign cultures and with each other, stimulated an experiment in realignment of traditional American values with corresponding innovative literary techniques. Short stories by Hemingway and Fitzgerald; novels by Hemingway, Fitzgerald and Gertrude Stein; poetry by Ezra Pound, Hilda Doolittle, e.e. cummings and T.S. Eliot. Spring.
