This section of freshman composition will consider and study the use of first person point of view in short stories, novels, and essays, and allow us to examine, analyze, and, yes, even write in the first person point of view. We’ll consider notions of central and peripheral narration, voice, bearing witness, and reliable and unreliable narrators. (Sometimes, we’ll find “I” is not all about me.) Along with readings and short written responses, you will write four papers over the term, each with a substantial revision. In our first two papers, we’ll read stories and a novel to discuss the writer’s use of first person point of view, and then practice close analytical writing to sharpen our critical skills. In the last two papers, we’ll create fiction and non-fiction using the first-person point of view. This class will emphasize revision as a necessary process in the development of good college-level writing and will encourage you, using both peer and whole-class workshops, to use this process to produce your best writing. Texts include Goodbye, Columbus by Philip Roth, Corregidora by Gayl Jones, Jesus’ Son by Denis Johnson, and selections from Joan Didion’s Slouching Towards Bethlehem.
