Required Text 1.) Baym. The Norton Anthology of American Literature: Shorter Version (Paperback). 7th Edition. ISBN: 978-0393930573 2.) Zinn. Voices of a People's History of the United States. ISBN: 1583226281 Course Description ENGL 223: Difference, Inequality, and War: Shaping the American Dream This is a survey course in which we study American Literature from the beginning to the Civil War. We will begin with a look at Native American Literature and the first narratives of the European colonizers. Then we will study the the Pilgrims and Puritans and their stories, and both the founding fathers' and the founding mothers' writings. Next we study many of the "giants" of American Literature, and we'll see how this country's origins have affected its national literature. You will quickly see that American Literature is the result of much strife, hardship, and individual triumphs. There are weekly reading quizzes and discussion posts, a proctored midterm, and a proctored final exam. The reading and discussion are vigorous so if you don't feel you can keep up, drop. The class will be vibrant and rewarding for those who do the work--sounds like the American Dream, doesn't it?
