ENGL 208 - American Lit Survey II – 1865 to the Present


Credit(s): 3
Prerequisite(s): ENGL 112  or ENGL 192  / HONR 192 .
This survey of American literature is from the post-Civil War period to the Present. The first part includes the emergence of Realism and Naturalism; the second part includes the Modern Period, in which the influence of social change, including World War I, Women’s Suffrage, Prohibition, and the Depression will be examined. In the Contemporary period, we will watch our national literature search for meaning, and prepare for change. We will question what it means to be “American,” the various ways that we define the term, and all the complexities surrounding the term.
