Course Website
A reading course of works important for understanding twentieth-century literary and intellectual history. Some of the works will be drawn from the Generals list, and half will be chosen by the instructor and half by the class. The goals are 1) familiarize ourselves with 20th century works “everyone” is expected to know something about; 2) practice for a very common instructional situation: having to get up a new text and introduce class discussion about it in a week.
