LIT 22 AMERICAN LITERATURE TO TWAIN

3 Units - 3 hours lecture
Transfers: CSU, UC
Prerequisite: Eligibility for college-level composition (C-ID ENGL 100) as determined by college assessment or other appropriate method.
This course examines the genesis of American literary traditions and what, in the views of diverse observers, it meant to be an American. The course surveys American literature from the narratives of exploration and encounter through the captivity narratives and sermons of the Colonial period; covers the political treatises and self-examination of the Enlightenment and Federalist period; and culminates in the Romanticism of the mid-nineteenth century with consideration of dominant and alternative voices. C-ID: ENGL 130. NR
