ENL 344 US Fiction from the Late Nineteenth Century to World War II(CO)(TALA)

4 hours. This course explores US fiction from the late-nineteenth century to World War II, highlighting the intersection of the histories, politics, and narrative forms that accompanied the growth of US nationalism.  The course probes themes that range from race, class, and gender to rural regionalism, urban industrialism, immigration, and the United States' role in World War I.  We will explore several modes of both realism and modernism as they support, revise, or contest discursive constructions of the nation.
