From the decolonization of Ireland to the fall of Paris, from the séance to the laboratory, from Cubism to Hollywood, we'll use two lives to tell what Stein called "Everybody's Autobiography." Though rarely studied in tandem, Gertrude Stein and W.B. Yeats were poets, dramatists, art collectors, memoirists, celebrities, and polemicists whose lives and work are central to a variety of stories we can tell about the development of English, French, Irish, and American literature (at least). This class will be a true introduction to modernism (no prior knowledge is assumed) by way of deep reading in the full oeuvre of each author, ranging from the 1890s to the 1940s.
