ENGL 232 Fall 2012 The Art of the Long Story (W)

Long stories (over 35 pages) at their best combine a novel's richness and depth with a story's shapeliness and concision. In this course, intended for students with a serious interest in writing, and in examining fiction from a writer's point of view, we'll study a variety of long stories and examine their craft elements. In addition to Francine Prose's Reading Like a Writer, we'll read work by James Baldwin, Deborah Eisenberg, Mavis Gallant, Katherine Mansfield, Alice Munro, David Foster Wallace, and others.
