In this course, we will consider what it might mean to bring a contemporary lens to the work of 19th and 20th century American authors William Faulkner, Henry David Thoreau, Emily Dickinson, Sylvia Plath, Mark Twain and Flannery O’Connor. Brilliant and timeless though their work may be, they were also fully human and products of their time and place. How might these texts reveal themselves anew when we bring our contemporary - and often polarized - sensibilities to bear on them?
