Karen Joy Fowler attended Berkeley and U.C. Davis, getting degrees in political science and North Asian studies. The title of Fowler’s first anthology of short stories, Artificial Things (1986), and the full title of the second Fowler story we’re reading, is taken from a line in a poem by Wallace Stevens, “Notes toward a Supreme Fiction.” Like many of Stevens’s poem, this one is about the relation between the imagination and reality. The line between the two often blurs in Stevens’s poetry, as the poet’s mind orders and interprets the world around him. This blurring of reality and imagination happens in several Fowler stories as well. Here is the excerpt from Stevens’s poem: …He sat in the park. The water of The lake was full of artificial things, Like a page of music, like an upper air, Like a momentary color, in which swans Were seraphs, were saints, were changing essences. - The Palm at the End of the Mind 223

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
