ENGL170A PO - Making it New: Anglo-American Literary Modernism

When Offered: Last offered fall 2016.
Instructor(s): K. Dettmar
Credit: 1

The great modernist writers–T.S. Eliot, Ezra Pound, Virginia Woolf, Langston Hughes, Gertrude Stein, Ford Madox Ford, Joseph Conrad, &c–were at the same time brilliant propagandists, creating the aesthetic system by which their works would be enjoyed. They also, along the way, created the first self-conscious literary period. In this course we’ll read fiction, poetry, and critical prose by the founders of Anglo-American literary modernism, looking at the values it supported as well as those it occluded–the voices it supported and those it made much more difficult to hear. Prerequisite: ENGL 067 PO .
