EN 365 The Contemporary Moment

This course seeks to give a student a fresh experience of the literature being produced in our culture here and now. The majority of the texts have appeared in the world very, very recently—texts by living writers who, as creative personalities, make a just claim on both our time and our attention. A number of these writers, among them Jean Valentine, C.K. Williams, Robert Pinsky, and T.C. Boyle, are well-established writers whose reputations are secure. Others are emerging or established writers about whom a student will know little, if indeed anything, at the beginning of the course, but who will afford the student experiences that will be richly worthwhile.

Prerequisite: Junior standing or above.
