ENG 606: Experimental Literature by Women

Description

Many artists believe that the way to accomplish art which creates social change in the world is to resist the traditional by utilizing new forms, styles, and approaches. Challenging any kind of established literary tradition, however, often results in marginalization; therefore, for an already historically marginalized group like women writers to experiment raises the risk of being silenced, discredited, and attacked. This course considers how various women writers across the twentieth century have experimented with literary form and explores the implications of this experimentation on the authors, on notions of gender, on the world.
