Class Description

Alice Munro, winner of the 2013 Nobel Prize in Literature, has been hailed as one of our greatest living short story writers. Her stories are often said to have the depth and richness of novels. In this six-hour intensive course, we will explore how Munro has developed this richness and depth through formal means-- her control of plot, point of view, and narrative time--as well as how she has explored themes of feminism, self-consciousness, and self-creation. Students will be required to read several stories from Carried Away, Munro's selected stories, before class. (The instructor will email a reading list to registered students a week before the class.) In class, we will discuss Munro's stories, write short exercises, and glean lessons for our own work.
