American Literature II

The Civil War, and the enormous devastation and loss of life it caused, left the United States morally exhausted at its conclusion. At the same time, the war stimulated innovations that helped the country prosper materially for the next five decades. Rapid transcontinental settlement and changing urban industrial conditions introduced new themes, new forms, new subjects, new characters, new regions, and new authors in the half century following the Civil War and into the present.

This course covers selected works in American literature from 1865 to the present. Emphasis is placed on historical background, cultural context, and literary analysis of selected prose, poetry, and drama. Upon completion, students should be able to interpret, analyze, and respond to literary works in their historical and cultural contexts.
