Modernism in Literature

Description:
"On or about December 1910," Virginia Woolf wrote, "human nature changed." This course examines the trans-Atlantic modernism(s) that arose in the early twentieth century in response to the epochal shifts that Woolf described. We will read poetry, prose, and theory by American and British modernists such as Woolf, Stein, Joyce, Eliot, Faulkner, Toomer, Lawrence, Williams, H.D., and Hurston in the context of historical, political, social, and scientific changes as well as in the context of the cultural changes-in art, music, film, architecture-that surrounded and influenced their aesthetic projects.
