Class Description

Modern Literature  
Teacher:  Jennifer Sam Hunter
Age:  15 & up
Cost:  $60 tuition, 1 of 4 payments;
$25 copy/supply fee per year
Text:  See description. Final book list to be distributed in June.
Description: This class will look at the classics of Modern Literature (not contemporary literature!). We will study the novels, poetry, and drama of the Modern era (with brief looks at the early Modern and Postmodern periods) in Europe and America (c. 1890-1960), within the context of the history and worldview of the times. We will also learn and review basic literary analysis. This is a discussion-focused class, with weekly reading and questions designed to prepare students for lively and insightful class discussions. My goal is to help students enjoy the artistry in these works of literature as well as wrestle with some of the difficult topics they present within a safe and Biblically-centered environment.  In addition to weekly homework, students will produce longer writing assignments and projects during the year. One full high school English credit. Possible titles: The Great Gatsby, Lord of the Flies, Animal Farm, The Metamorphosis, Poetry and Short Stories, The Glass Menagerie, The Old Man and the Sea, The Pearl, The Crucible, To Kill a Mockingbird, Fahrenheit 451, Siddhartha, Citizen of the Galaxy, Till We Have Faces.
