The Civil War in Literature: English.
The Civil War in Literature is a course in which investigation is made into the legacy that this war left to humanity. Through the reading and discussion of literary works written during or about the Civil War, including "Jubilee,""Gone with the Wind,""Red Badge of Courage," poetry by Walt Whitman, and the essays of Frederick Douglass, students may become keenly aware of conflict between families, national heroes, and differing views of the abolition of slavery. The course suggests methods, techniques, and approaches for appraising the war, its causes, solutions and aftermath, which should result in a greater understanding of human nature and of present day conflicts.
