ENGL 4481 Woolf and Hemingway (Spring: 3 )
Writing at the same time, living lives of great achievement punctuated by episodes of madness culminating in suicide, embodying revolutions in literary style, Virginia Woolf and Ernest Hemingway defined and dramatized the dilemmas of modern manhood and womanhood as memorably as any figures of the twentieth century. Contrasts between the two leap first to the eye; startling and fertile comparisons exist too. Readings: Hemingway's In Our Time, The Sun Also Rises, A Moveable Feast, The Old Man and the Sea, The Gates of Eden; Woolf's The Voyage Out, Mrs. Dalloway, A Room of One's Own, The Waves, Between the Acts.
