The course offers students the time and focus necessary to take on in-depth studies of a few substantial English-language modernist works. These works include some of the “difficult” but influential texts of the 20th century, such as James Joyce’s Ulysses, H.D.’s Trilogy, and T.S. Eliot’s Four Quartets. In addition, the course will introduce students to discussions about scholarly editions of texts. (Post-1800.)
