ENG 384 - Late Nineteenth-Century American Literature and Culture


This course covers the historical period associated with the rise of realism and naturalism in American literature that is traditionally marked by the end of the Civil War and the beginning of World War I. While the course’s focus may vary, it will explore the definitions of realism and naturalism with regard to both historical context and aesthetic agendas. In testing definitions of American realism and naturalism, the course may ask questions about whose reality, whose America, and whose intellectual and cultural traditions have shaped our understanding of the literary movements that arose in response to major changes in American society during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
