Join the celebration of the best short story writers of the 20th century. As an extension of the popular “Contemporary Short Stories” class, we will pay tribute to classical writers such as Edna Ferber, Ring Lardner, Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, William Faulkner and so many more. Examine one or two memorable stories each week, teasing out the meanings and building an appreciation of the short story as an art form. Broaden your knowledge and sharpen your interpretive skills with lively discussions and interactive challenges. This is a repeat course from Spring 2017.
REQUIRED READING: Lorrie Moore, Heidi Pitlor, Eds. 100 Years of The Best American Short Stories. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2015.
