The Origins of American Literature

ENGL 1310H S01 [CRN: 24410]

Where does American literature begin? Can it be said to have a single point of origin? Can writings by people who did not consider themselves American be the source of our national literary tradition? Does such a tradition even exist and, if so, what are its main characteristics? Authors may include Columbus, de Vaca, Shakespeare, and Anne Bradstreet. WRIT
