The Story of American Fiction
American fiction started out as a bold response to the European novel and took narrative to places that reflected the new country and its values. American fiction continued the exploration of this new land and society well into the twentieth century. We will explore the uniqueness and development of American fiction in short works by Nathaniel Hawthorne, Herman Melville, Edith Wharton, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, and William Faulkner. All works are available both free on the internet or in inexpensive used copies from Amazon. Students are asked to read for the first day of class Hawthorne’s stories: The Birthmark and Young Goodman Brown, available from the following link: https://sparks.eserver.org/files/imported/books/oldmanse.pdf.
