ENG 310 Studies in Literary Genres |
In this course we will consider the development and variety of science fiction literature, both in America and abroad. We will begin with early classics, such as H.G. Wells’ The Time Machine, but we will focus on modern American authors such as Philip K. Dick, Ursula LeGuin, and Dan Simmons; and some European and Japanese authors as well. I am particularly interested in the way this genre stretches our conceptions of literary form.
