59-2430 Dialects and Fiction Writing


Course provides students with informed training in listening with a good ear and distinguishing between eye dialect and dialect that is both accurately and artistically rendered, with an understanding of the tradition of dialect writing in fiction. Dialect speech and writing have richly contributed to the breadth, variety, and authenticity of American and English literature. Students keep journals and research the ways in which writers employ dialect in their fiction as well as what they have to say about such uses, while also developing a facility with dialect in their own fiction writing.
