»»WEEK 5 (2/4 & 2/6/03) -- for this week, have read all of Faulkner's As I Lay Dying.
»»WEEK 6 (2/11 & 2/13/03)-- if you haven't already, begin reading Djuna Barnes' novel Nightwood. As I've indicated previously, Barne's novel marks a moment of "high Modernism" in U.S. literature -- whatever techniques we encountered in Dos Passos and Faulkner we see intensified in Barnes. This novel is complex in terms of both the story it tells and the techniques it uses to tell it . . . and if you're big on Freud and Jung, you can have great fun with this book. But it's a head-twister, so don't wait until the last minute.
