Section Information for Spring 2020
This Lit course explores the intersection between fiction and autobiography. The writers on our reading list, for reasons of decorum, legality, secrecy, or aesthetics, have preferred to fictionalize actual events instead of rendering them as non-fiction. We will look at the techniques authors use to change reality to fiction, such as defamiliarization, distancing, exaggeration, etc. Students are expected to keep a weekly diary (one entry per week) of important events or incidents, from which material will be drawn and developed into an auto-fictional narrative. Each student is expected to complete one piece of auto-fictional work to be discussed in class and another one for final submission.
