ENG 3550 - American Short Fiction

3 cr
With the American short story and novella as its subject, this course studies short fiction by way of the literary conventions that define, sustain, and transform it; by way of the distinctions to be drawn between short fiction and the novel; but predominantly by way of the formal and philosophical development of American short fiction itself, with particular attention paid its modern and contemporary significance. Reading includes short fiction that represents such development from the nineteenth century to the present.
This course counts towards the Aesthetic Understanding Frame of Reference.
Prerequisite: Highly recommended: ENG 1310
