COLLEGE INTENSIVE WRITING SECTION

This section of L204 will begin with the oldest epic, Gilgamesh, and then jump to the twentieth century where we’ll read two short comic masterpieces, Amos Tutuola’s Palm-Wine Drinkard and William Faulkner’s As I Lay Dying. Then we’ll proceed to the Heath Introduction to Fiction and read and analyze several dozen short stories from the late nineteenth to the late twentieth century. Written work for the course will consist of three short (3-5 page) critical essays, a final test, and a final creative project, a 6-10 page short story, which will be photocopied by each student and distributed to all members of the class for discussion.
