A course devoted to selected works of American fiction published roughly between the Civil War and First World War.  To help us make connections between selected works, we shall focus on three themes or issues: (1) the “rags-to-riches” fable in its positive and negative incarnations, (2) women and freedom, and (3) slavery and its post-Civil-War legacy.
