Course Description

"Write what you know" has long been the best advice for new authors--but how does a writer know that in 50 to 100 years or more their work still will be timely, if not immensely popular? This has been the case for F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, Henry James, Edith Wharton, and Richard Wright. In this course we will discuss, The Great Gatsby, The Sun Also Rises, Daisy Miller, House of Mirth, and Native Son--the plots, characters, settings, and the history of the five novels and how the experiences of these writers hugely contributed to their work.
