Decaying antebellum mansions, religious charlatans, and raucous poker parties – Southern literature has it all. This course will take a close look at four prominent Southern writers from the twentieth century: Tennessee Williams, Flannery O’Connor, William Faulkner, and Eudora Welty. In addition to examining the historical and cultural background of these Southern writers, we will study the manner in which they critiqued their own cultures and used their work to dispel the myths and romanticized stereotypes of the antebellum South, often in bizarre and shocking ways.
Four sessions. E - $160, L - $176
