Core 164/A: American Love Stories (Barnes)

MWF, 9:00-9:50, McGowan 118

It’s been argued that American writers cannot tell a happy love story.

Instead of ending a novel with a wedding, or writing about the joys of married life, they obsess over loneliness, terror, and escape from civilization.  Think of The Scarlet Letter or T= he Great Gatsby, and it looks as if love is bound to kill you.  In this class, we will read novels= and stories about love, or the lack thereof, by authors whose work seems to sup= port this argument (such as Nathaniel Hawthorne and Edgar Allen Poe) as well as = by those whose work might oppose it (such as Zora = Neale Hurston and Elizabeth Stoddard).  We will also consider one or two more recent American love stories on film and television.  Throughout, we wi= ll be asking how American authors imagine that love unfolds, and we will develop = our own understanding of whether, how, and (perhaps) why th= at love ends badly.

 

Core 164/= B: Immigrant Fictions (Field)

MWF, 1:00-1:50pm, Hafey-Marian 510

This course will examine the experience of immigrants in America in the 20t= h century in literature and film.  We will ponder:  How do immigran= ts see America?  And how does America view immigrants?   What d= oes “the American dream” mean to immigrants?  And how do they achieve  it?  What is the meaning of home?   We will study the range of immigrant experiences by readi= ng such authors as Anzia Yezi= erska, Bernard Malamud, Hisaye Yamamoto, John Okada, <= span class=3DSpellE>Bharati Mukherjee, Doreen= Baingana, Julia Alvarez, and Jun= ot Diaz.  Possible films include The Immigrant, El Norte, Maria Full of Grace, The Namesake, Sweet Land, and In America.
