Course Description

This course introduces students to the lives, works, and legacies of Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and William Faulkner. Alongside their most celebrated novels such as Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises, Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby, and Faulkner's Absalom, Absalom!, the readings encompass a broad selection of their short stories and their lesser-known masterpieces, including Fitzgerald's Tender Is the Night and Faulkner's Light in August. The course consists of a series of lectures designed to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of who these authors were – their values, personalities, and aesthetic tastes. Additionally, it explores the fundamental principles of effective story-telling as demonstrated in their works, and delves into the profound insights these authors offer into the complexities of human existence. Hemingway, Fitzgerald, and Faulkner emerge from this exploration as dedicated craftsmen, keen social observers, and formidable moral thinkers.
