    Welcome to American Literature!


      Dear American Literature Students,

      Welcome to American Literature!  My hope is that by the end of this course you have a new appreciation for the subject matter and will be successful in every possible way.  I am counting on you to make the best of this experience, and I am here to support you every step of the way.  American Literature presents an introduction to literary time periods: Native American, Colonial, Revolutionary, Romanticism, Civil War, Harlem Renaissance, Modernism, and Contemporary.  Texts will be selected from a diverse groups of American authors and traditions.
