American Literature from the Colonial Period to the Civil War
ENGL 203
Fall 2022 not offered
Crosslisting: AMST 243

This lecture course marks a path through American literature, moving from European fantasies and narratives of the conquest of the New World to representations of slavery, industrialization, and U.S. national expansion. Historical sweep is coupled with textual focus: we will concentrate on a small number of works, shuttling between close reading and historical synthesis.
