Primary Instructor:

This course will introduce you to literature that explores the fluid boundary between the real and the imaginary. We will read works that explore altered states of consciousness (whether dreams or hallucinations), ambiguously supernatural events, fantasies and utopias, and worlds that seem to mirror our own even while subjecting it to uncanny distortions. In these kaleidoscopic texts, authors investigate not only how we understand and access reality, but also how literature engages with, comments on, represents, and transforms reality. As in dreams, the unreal can often tell us quite a bit about the real.

This course will help you to lay the groundwork of a successful approach to writing, but also give you the freedom to explore your own ideas and voice. You will hone your skills in six areas essential to college writing by learning to think critically, produce incisive close readings, create nuanced and well-supported arguments, ask productive questions, compare ideas and methods across texts, and revise your work in response to peer-, instructor-, and self-generated feedback.

Authors covered in this course include Henry James, George Eliot, Sherwood Anderson, and many more!
