HUM 5217 The Active Voice

An exploration of how sociological and political crises transform the literature of their time, forcing an intersection of public and private voices. Students will examine the work of poets who push the devastations of their culture into their most personal voice and writers who bear witness in their literary narratives. The course will combine lecture, discussion, and assignments designed to find the 'heat' of the writer's experience.
