These fascinating novels each engage with specific moments of American history and we will consider topics such as the pioneer experience, the conflicted lifestyle of the hedonism of 1920s America and the so-called ‘Lost Generation’ of American writers, as well as the long reaching legacy of the American Civil War.

The course commences at 10 am on 6th October until 12 noon, with a mid-morning coffee break. It will open with Cather’s, My Antonia, for three weeks until half-term commencing 26th October. The course resumes on 3rd November for seven weeks in which we study   Tender is the Night for 3 weeks, followed by Faulkner, Absalom, Absalom for a further four weeks.
