Through early American literature, we have the unique opportunity to see and experience what the United States was like before the Civil War through the eyes of those who not only lived here, but helped create it. We will explore some of the most influential social pieces ever written and discuss why these are vital to the fabric of our nation. Think of all we can learn about the United States by studying those who write about it. (Prerequisites: ENGL101 or ENGL110)
