American Literature: Classics

Through American Literature: Classics, students explore the thoughts and feelings of those who have lived on this land that we now call the United States. Through their words, they experience the events that helped create this country and that made it what it is today. In the process, they will begin to understand more fully the unique heritage and vision of the American people. Each work of fiction is a window into the real-life issues experienced in the past and today.

Content warning: The classic texts in this course describe events that portray historical events, beliefs, and perspectives in an accurate, realistic way. Students will encounter disturbing material. As with all material in this course, we encourage students to approach the topics with sensitivity and kindness, both to the people you are studying and to themselves.
