MFA 688 - Finding Form: Novellas and Story Cycles (3)

This course examines the relationship between form and content in works of fiction of varying lengths, with a primary focus on two "in between" forms, the story cycle and the novella. Other works, such as a novel with multiple plot lines or a series of stories by a single writer written over time about the same characters, may be studied as well. The reading list includes both classics and contemporary works from the U.S. and around the world. Offered in the Fall.
