LIT-2050 American Literature I

American literature blossomed in the early 19th century into what historians have called "the Romantic Period of American Literature." With the United States firmly established as a nation by 1800, this proliferation of literature caused the young country to be recognized internationally as a literary force. American Literature I offers an introduction to the major works of key writers of the early 19th century from the following points of view: their cultural context; their historical context; and their literary characteristics.

Advisory: Students should have successfully completed English Composition I and II prior to enrolling.
