“Artists are here to disturb the peace,” James Baldwin reminds us. Through examination of a diverse collection of writing across time, space, genre, and style, we will increase our appreciation and apprehension of the music, mystery, and art, in sentences and narratives, with an eye toward building fictions of our own. Our approach to character, plot, style, and theme will critique conventional ways of thinking about fiction as we aim to produce our best literary art. Among the writers we’ll read are Djuna Barnes, Roland Barthes, Paul Beatty, Alejo Carpentier, Guy Davenport, Samuel R. Delany, Helen DeWitt, Jenny Erpenbeck, Renee Gladman, László Krasznahorkai, Robert Lopez, Garielle Lutz, Joyelle McSweeney, and George Saunders. There may be required textbooks or materials associated with this course.
