American Pastoral
ENGL 277
Fall 2006 not offered
Crosslisting: AMST 210

The United States has often been called "nature's nation." This course will explore some of the ways in which American writers from the revolutionary period to the present have depicted relations between their fellow citizens and the natural world. Paying special attention to exploration, farming, and the "back to the land" movement, we will raise questions about national identity and values, rural ideology, utopianism, and the foundations of the environmental movement.
