American Literature II

A survey of American literature beginning with Walt Whitman and ending with selected major writers from the present. Although careful attention is given to the historical, social, and intellectual developments that gave rise to the literature, the emphasis is on the individual selections themselves as outstanding expressions for our American literary heritage. The course employs critical reading, thinking, and writing skills in the analysis of a wide variety of selected readings.

Pre-requisite(s): Completion of ENGL-1301 and ENGL-1302, or equivalent, with an earned course grade of "C" or above.
