ENGL 180 - (LT) The Outlaw in American Literature: An Irish-American Perspective

Semester Hours: 3
Periodically
The hostile reception met by Irish immigrants arriving in America in the 18th and 19th centuries contributed to many of them becoming outlaws. Authors often cast outlaw narratives as romantic stories of rebels fighting oppression. Viewing the literature both in its historical context and through its present-day evaluations, this course endeavors to understand the beliefs, myths, and legends surrounding outlaws that constitute an important Irish contribution to American culture.
