1st Yr. Seminar: ENLT 134X - (FYS,CL) Hardboiled Heroes & Gangsters

3 cr.
The hardboiled tradition stretches from 1920s Hemingway to today’s James Ellroy, Dennis Lehane, Clint Eastwood, and Coen Brothers.  This class traces the way the genre has imagined detectives, gangsters, cowboys, and superheroes as representatives of the American experience, and it examines novels, stories, and films that define the tradition’s evolution.
