ENG 2254 - Nature Writing
A consideration of various responses to the natural world and the ways in which writers have described their encounters with it. Students focus on creative non-fiction, beginning with a brief foray into foundational work by nineteenth century authors such as Thoreau and John Muir, then concentrating on the work of more recent writers like Dillard, Berry, Abbey, and Lopez. Students will produce their own creative nonfiction responses to nature.
