Dealing with William Faulkner's most prominent works of the 1920s, 30s, and 40s, this course has a four-fold focus: it seeks to 1) define Faulkner's particular brand of literary modernism, 2) discuss the typical formal and thematic traits of his fiction, 3) situate his works in their Southern sociocultural context, and 4) pursue close readings of particular texts.
The course requires a bachelor's degree with intermediate courses in English or equivalent.
