INDS 270 A Moveable Feast: American Writers in Paris

American writers have always gone to Paris, but the question is why. The answer lies both in the city itself and in the literature it has inspired. Twentieth-century writers like Ernest Hemingway, Gertrude Stein, James Baldwin, and Gore Vidal are among the literary expatriates students consider while exploring 'their Paris'. Their Paris, vividly imagined and literally experienced, still exists—if you know where to look for it and what to read.
