In the twentieth century, American fiction had an outsize impact on world literature as well as popular culture in the United States. This course will explore particularly important moments in its development, from the emergence of avant-garde modernism and the persistence of naturalism to the diversification of fictional aims and methods that distinguished American literature from most others through much of the century.  Attention will also be given to relationship between popular culture and literature. We will read novels as well as short stories. Authors will include Toomer, Hemingway, Faulkner, Hurston, Larsen, O'Connor, Welty, Bellow, Ellison, Vonnegut, Silko, and Morrison.
