Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Faulkner

by Yale University

This course material is only available in the iTunes U app on iPhone or iPad.

Course Description

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.

This Yale College course, taught on campus two times per week for 50 minutes, was recorded for Open Yale Courses in Fall 2011. 

Warning: Some of the lectures in this course contain graphic content and/or adult language that some users may find disturbing.

Speaker needs to go to toast masters

Great idea for an iTunes course; love the content and concepts for the lectures. However the professor articulates the subject matter on two great riders like dry toast. She has too many "ums" to the point of distraction and reads from her notes. A terrible way to teach about these very important literary icons. Just because you can write a research paper doesn't mean you can teach it well to others. Disappointing.

I am literally dumbfounded!

I was really looking forward to viewing the podcast on Fitzgerald's, Great Gatsby. I am astonished that this professor (?) is doing the podcast. Also surprised she's a Yale professor with such poor speaking techniques. As the person state's above, "so many "um's", it's distracting to the point of not being able to watch it. Also, her delivery is so soft and muted; even with the volume at highest level you cannot hear her. Combine the poor articulation with volume issue, along with the uncountable "um's" her podcasts are unwatchable.
Sad, but true. :(

I am glad that, despite a few negative reviews on the professor's presentation, I decided to download this free course. I am far from finished with the lectures but already I have gained a wealth of information. The professor's ability to convey her subject in an articulate, and clear manner meets my expectations and I am glad to have the opportunity to view her classes.
