FYS 033 Wild Imaginings: The Creative Process

An introduction to the verbal art of imaginative extremists through a close study of literature that subverts conventions of logic and tests the boundaries between fantasy and reality. Among the authors considered are Lewis Carroll, Manuel Puig, and Russell Edson. Students analyze the literature and, when appropriate, drafts, letters, and diary entries that illuminate the writing processes of authors.
