American Literature Post Civil War to Present - ENG256

Bristol Community College

Credits: 3

Subject Area(s): English



This course surveys a variety of authors and genres of writing after the Civil War to the present. Readings are drawn from works some considered to be "classics," by Americans of Western European , African, and Native cultures; writers from increasing numbers of immigrant cultures, including Mexican, Eastern European, Asian, and Caribbean, and works reflective of a postwar culture. Topics for discussion and writing include ways in which both an author's culture as well as social and historical circumstances, inform the author's work, the work of other authors, and our understanding of who we are as increasingly diverse multicultural Americans. Prerequisite: ENG 102 or permission of instructor.
