Instructor: Lindenberg
Tues 3:30 PM – 6:20 PM

This course will focus on the hybrid genre of the literary essay, via both the study of published work and the production and discussion of students’ own work. Authors covered might include Rushdie, Chabon, Woolf, Auden, Baldwin, Mendelsohn, Doty, Carter, Wood, Ozick, Pinsky, Morrison, and other writers-whether poets, fiction or nonfiction writers, or critics-who have taken a readable yet rigorous approach to the study of literary forms, techniques, and ideas. Student work might include reader responses, presentations, book reviews, and shorter essays as well as one or two more sustained works.
