Class NOTES / Commentary

Last Updated: 15 July 2019

--To the Most RECENT "Class Notes" Updates--
• For M, 8/26: get texts (at least The Art of the Short Story—the Gioia and Gwynn anthology—for now)

• For W, 8/28: "The Art of the Short Story" (Gioia and Gwynn 3-6); Poe: "The Tale and Its Effect" (725); Joyce: "Epiphanies" (464)

• For F, 8/30: "The Elements of Short Fiction" (Gioia and Gwynn 849-862 [skim?!])

N OTE: I am intentionally brief, even abbreviatory, in the following NOTES because I mean them to function as reminders & sources of review rather than to serve in lieu of coming to class: they DON'T. However, this page has a further usefulness: by "Commentary," I mean that some points in these class notes are expanded upon (and re-organized) in ways that our limited class time—and my rather manic teaching style—disallowed. . . .
