This course offers an in-depth look at 11 carefully selected figures: Ernest Hemingway, William Faulkner, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Zora Neale Hurston, Sherwood Anderson, Flannery O’Connor, William S. Burroughs, Kurt Vonnegut, Robert Coover, Toni Morrison, and Don DeLillo. Like no one else in history, Americans grow up believing—whether realistically or not—that they are masters of a destiny without constraint. How did this national ethos unleash a body of fiction dramatically different from anything that came before? This course sheds light not only on the sheer magnificence of these writers’ literary achievements but explores their uniquely American character as well. Despite their remarkable variety, each represents a body of work that could only have emerged in the United States.
