55-3301 Writers Reading the Tradition


Course is a lecture and discussion class devoted to reading the historic overview of fiction writing and fiction writers reflecting on the novels and short stories of other writers. Students will come to understand the times and storytelling traditions that influenced such writers as Miguel de Cervantes (Don Quixote), Henry Fielding (Tom Jones), Jane Austen (Pride and Prejudice), Gustave Flaubert (Madame Bovary), and Charles Dickens (Great Expectations), as well as writers reflecting upon other writers such as Jonathan Swift, Henry James, D.H. Lawrence, James Baldwin, and Dorothy Van Ghent. In particular, students will reflect on the writing canon to understand that they are writing out of a strong historical tradition of story development.
