The Uses of Fantasy: A 20th Century Sampler of Unreailty
ENGL 218
Spring 2007 not offered

"Fantasy is scrutiny," says the American poet Molly Peacock, implying that to fantasize is not only to turn away from the world, but also to pay attention to it. In this course we will scrutinize fantasy itself, recognizing it and its counterpart, reality, as mutable categories that shape-shift from author to author, place to place, time to time. We'll investigate the work of a variety of fantasists of the last 100 years.
