LIT 212 - Literature of the American South

The literature of the American South has a distinct and rich tradition.  The focus of the course will be on the South as a diverse cultural place where race, religion, class, family, gender, sexuality, and language have shaped how writers see and construct the world.  We will examine the attitudes, assumptions, and values that have traditionally informed Southern literature and will also look at texts that challenge those ideas.  We will read texts written from the nineteenth century to the present including those of writers such as Kate Chopin, Zora Neale Hurston, William Faulkner, Flannery O'Connor, Tennessee Williams, Ralph Ellison, Carson McCullers, Walker Percy, Alice Walker, Lee Smith, Cormac McCarthy, and others.
