ENG 063: 20th Century Women Writers

Units: 4

Read texts from several genres (novels, poetry, plays, and nonfiction) written by women of the Anglophone world during the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Students will explore the diverse contributions of these writers to literary history. Attention will be given to the ways in which these texts represent and engage with intersections of gender with other social categories, such as class, race, ethnicity, sexuality, nationality, and (dis)ability. Readings will include works by Virginia Woolf, Jean Rhys, Toni Morrison, Cherríe Moraga, Celeste Ng, and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. Students will hone their critical thinking, close reading, and analytical writing skills.
