ENGL 52.02 The Civil War in Literature

Surveys in American literature often omit the Civil War. Yet the war called forth a vast range of literary responses, in genres as diverse as poetry, popular song, novels, and other prose genres. This course will examine how literature depicts the war, and where the limits of that depiction lie. Readings include Walt Whitman's Drum Taps, Herman Melville's Battle Pieces and Aspects of the War (1866), Louisa May Alcott's "Hospital Sketches," Stephen Crane's Red Badge of Courage.
