Literature Seminar: Women Writers

This course examines experimental women writers and how they investigate the margins of their condition while participating in the center of the poetics. With an emphasis on cultural, historical, and/or literary contexts, the course includes a variety of authors and texts: poetry; prose; and cross-genre. We also explore language and meaning: the nature of subjectivity/persona and self; as well as the feminine, the body, and community. All genders welcome! Prerequisite: 3 credits of 300-level course work or permission of instructor.
