From Ancient Greece we’re traveling to America….but I’m not yet sure just where in time we’re going to stop! Here are four themed tours. Which would you most like to see featured on an upcoming Circuit?
Please note that we’ve had Americans on the lists in the past; we’ll try to give those authors a chance again at some point for future tours. For now, though, these are the authors/themes we’re going to decide from among.
Colonial and Revolutionary Thought: Defining A New Nation
- Anne Bradford, Phyllis Wheatley, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, Thomas Paine, Washington Irving.
American Romanticism: A Unique American Style
- James Fenimore Cooper, Edgar Allan Poe, Walt Whitman, Emily Dickinson, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Herman Melville, the Transcendentalists.
American Turn-of-the-Century Naturalism: Social Issues in Literature
- Edith Wharton, Theodore Dreiser, Upton Sinclair, Stephen Crane, Jack London, Frank Norris
The Lost Generation: Experimentation in Style and Form
- Ezra Pound, Gertrude Stein, Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, T.S. Eliot, Waldo Pierce
I’d love your input, regardless of whether you will be able to participate in the tour.
