EN 4640 - Americans in Paris

In this course students examine poetry and fiction of American writers who found community and artistic inspiration in the City of Light during the early decades of the 20th century, especially in the entourage of Gertrude Stein. She labeled them “A Lost Generation.” While such writers as T.S. Eliot, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, John Dos Passos, may have felt alienated and dispossessed, they gave American Literature its modern vision.
