This course examines major works by Hemingway, Fitzgerald, and Faulkner, exploring their interconnections on three analytic scales: the macro history of the United States and the world; the formal and stylistic innovations of modernism; and the small details of sensory input and psychic life. Warning: Some of the lectures in this course contain graphic content and/or adult language that some users may find disturbing.

Great resource

Yes it is hard to hear the professor sometimes, but the content makes up for it. This helped my immensely with Faulkner. Thank you so much!!!!


great lectures, I'm drawn to Faulkner and her expositiong of the Greek comic themes in Light In August was enlightening. Heads up it's on youtube w cc option which makes everything very clear

Enjoyable lecture with sometimes difficult to understand moments

Home sick from teaching, I found great joy in the connections that this lecturer was able to make between characters. The downside to these connections is that I needed a repeat listen to clarify some of the words which were pronounced in ways that made it possible to confuse then for other words. For example, her diction of the word "vague" sounded like "fake" and once I realized that this was not what she was saying it became a lot clearer. Of course there is the obvious repetition of the word "um" which became a pitiable recurrence because in my mind this lesson had a very good flow to it and the "ums" were almost self sabotaging the excellent points she made.

The depth of analysis that this lecture gives on the idea of Fitzgerald trying to capture motion was reasonable, and I wish that she had stayed with it throughout the lesson for it made startling ties in the instance of the Buchanans' lawn to the Valley of Ashes. I'm interested to see where else this concept can be applied, and hopefully the second segment of this lecture will provide.
Overall, this was a lecture which increased my understanding of the novel and although some words were not exactly clear, the ideas were.
