ENGLISH 12B: Introduction to English III: Literature and the Crises of Humanism

Traces the development of British and American literature from 1850 to present in relation to nineteenth and twentieth-century crises of humanism. Starting with the realist novel, we will explore how poetry and fiction challenged and reinforced the exclusion of certain classes of people from full humanity. We will see how modernist writers demolished humanist norms of character and plot, and weigh literature¿s responses to the inhumanities of WWII and totalitarianism. Finally, we will encounter critiques of the humanist legacy from postcolonial and ethnic writers, and from posthuman speculative fiction. Concludes with a discussion of humanism and the ¿humanities¿ today.
