Good serious fiction serves as both a mirror and a window upon human experience. In this course, you will read one short story each week from such authors as Poe, Hawthorne, Fitzgerald, Hemingway, and Baldwin, along with some of the great Europeans, such as Tolstoy, Camus, Balzac, and some recent writers published in journals such as The New Yorker. Our goal is to participate in the ongoing dialogue on our common humanity.  Taught by Dr. John Parks.
