O’Sullivan described it in the mid-nineteenth century. Today we know that there are many histories and memories associated with the literatures of the U.S. South. This course examines relationships among a number of literary traditions: the literatures of slavery (plantation fiction and slave narratives); the literatures of pastoral (local color, Civil War fiction, Southern agrarianism, and Southern modernism); counter-pastoral literature (Old Southwest humor, counter-pastoral fiction and the Southern grotesque).When Offered: Fall or Spring, Spring 2016; Every Third Year
