Familiarize the students with important works of American drama and give them an overview of the genre as a whole.

Drama was the last literary genre to develop in the United States of America. However, it matured rather quickly as we will find out when we discuss important representatives. This course seeks to acquaint the students with this literary genre as well as to provide an overview of American drama.

 

Authors discussed will include (but are not limited to): Eugene O’Neill, Tennessee Williams, Arthur Miller, and Marsha Norman.
