Spring 2012 not offered
Disparaged by rationalists, realists, and Victorians, the grotesque nonetheless became one of the major styles of the last half century. This class will pair readings in the grotesque tradition with creative writing projects. We'll consider the place of the grotesque in writing from Ovid to the present: how it works and the uses (political, satiric, comic, etc.) to which it can be put.
This is a creative writing course.
