CNTP 493 - NATURE AND THE AMERICAN EXPERIENCE
How have Americans responded to the unique riches of their natural environment? How has it influenced American cultural development? Through the analysis of exemplary fiction, non-fiction, poetry, painting, and film, we will try to understand the evolution of American perception of nature from the 17th century to the present. Selections will represent the Puritans, the transcendentalists, the romantics, painters such as Carlin, Bierstdt, and the Hudson River School, moderns (i.e., Faulkner, Frost, Snyder and Hemingway), native Americans, and the contemporary naturalists (i.e., Mattiessen, Dillard, McPhee).
