The City in American Fiction

ENGL 107
Spring 2007
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: AMST 112
Course Cluster: Urban Studies

The Puritan, John Winthrop wanted his followers to "build a city upon a hill," to demonstrate the righteousness of the newly-arrived inhabitants of America. Throughout our history, authors have written about the city, sometimes as utopian, sometimes dystopian, often as documentary, sometimes as a character, itself, in a fiction. We will examine fiction from the 19th and 20th centuries to review this complex and often exciting theme.
