Course Detail: O_ESSAY - In-Person - Argue or Inform? Reading the Essay

The personal essay is a slippery form. It can argue a perspective, inform a reader, perform literary criticism, state a manifesto, or simply collect observations of daily life. In this course we will read and discuss 12 essays from the Best American Essays of 2023 anthology. This is intended to be a reading-group course, where opinions are not only sought after, but required. Please plan on engaging in the pleasures of parsing the meanings and intentions of these various writers. New in-person course. Format includes discussion.
