Writing Intensive Course Information

Subtitle: Capitalism and Literature.

This course is a brief survey of some of the literary effects of the increasingly global European capitalist system from the 18th century to the present. We’ll focus on what kind of person that economic system required and what that person’s relation was to the land they inhabited and the resources they wanted, including the animals and other living things they sought to control. We’ll look at how literary fiction makes the capitalist world real, but also how it describes other realities and other consciousnesses that expose capitalism’s destructiveness. Texts include works by British, American, Cherokee, Indian, and Aboriginal Australian writers: Daniel Defoe (Robinson Crusoe); Jane Austen (Pride and Prejudice); Herman Melville (Moby Dick); Thomas King (Green Grass, Running Water); Amitav Ghosh, (The Hungry Tide); and Alexis Wright (Carpentaria).
