Please note that this course has started and enrolment is no longer possible.

We explore the remarkable literary renaissance that took place in the American South in the mid-20th century, focusing on three works: William Faulkner’s Absalom, Absalom!, Tennessee Williams’s A Streetcar Named Desire and Richard Wright’s Native Son. We examine the intricate relationship between race, the Southern plantation myth and the tragic existential sensibility that so distinctively marks Southern literature.
