AMERICAN LITERATURE IN THE POSTMODERN AGE (1945-PRESENT)

2013 Fall Term

3 Units

English 363

This course is designed to acquaint students with the rich tradition of American fiction and poetry of the last fifty years. Focusing on such figures as Ellison, Plath, Morrison, Pynchon, Baraka, and Delillo, this course invites students to debate the role that literature plays in a postwar American society. In doing so, we will focus on how writers address such postwar developments as: dawn of the nuclear age, Vietnam, the rise of mass culture, and rapid technologizing of American society.

Other Requirements: PREREQ: ENGLISH 101 AND 102 OR ENGLISH 161 AND 162 OR ENGLISH 105.
