ENGL 183C - Readings in Literature: Baseball and American

Historian Jacques Barzun observed, “Whoever would understand the heart and mind of America had better learn baseball.” Baseball and American literature explores the weave of baseball’s ubiquitous presence in American life from its influence on language and expression to its connection with the American persona and identity through literature from Ring Lardner to August Wilson. While maintaining a predominant literary focus, “Baseball and American Literature” also examines other forms of popular culture from songs to vaudeville to other forms of popular culture that inform the literature.
