Advanced Course קורס בחירה
This course will focus on novels published during the interwar period (1918-1939). Often dubbed the “modernist” phase in American literary history, this period saw an explosion of literary innovation, as young novelists began to experiment with new forms of expression. Running the gamut from Ernest Hemingway’s clipped, hard-boiled style, through John Dos Passos' fragmented collages, to William Faulkner’s baroque, grandiloquent rhetoric, modernist formal experimentation challenged established notions of literary form and cleared new paths for the novel. Thematically too, post-WWI iconoclasts broke with earlier conventions, and explored the themes of violence, alienation, racial discrimination and poverty with new urgency and force.
