About this course:

A focused look at American short stories from their beginnings through the twentieth century, tracing distinctive American themes and values. Authors include Edgar Allan Poe, Charlotte Gilman Perkins, Edith Wharton, Jean Toomer, Ernest Hemingway, Eudora Welty, Bernard Malamud, Shirley Jackson, Donald Barthelme, Raymond Carver, and Tobias Wolff. The works of these authors reveal the complex, often conflicting contours of American literary and cultural life—stories situated in regional, ethnic, and racial communities—and stories about telling stories.
