Faulkner, Morrison
ENGL 333
Fall 2008 not offered

This course will examine the prose of two major American writers whose brilliant use of language in exploring race, history, identity, and love are without peer. We will read William Faulkner, discovering the texture of his Yoknapatawpha County, and Toni Morrison, in whose hands the centrality of race in American culture challenges and responds to Faulkner.

Essential Capabilities: Interpretation
The density of language, including dialect, in the texts of the course requires considerable interpretive work by students.
