It is divided into 4 segments: 1) The Modern World, 2) World War II and Trauma, 3) Homelessness and Vagrancy, and 4) Postcolonial Literature.

We will study the cultural and historical context of each text, examine the methods the authors use to weave their tales, and explore critical theories that deepen our understanding of literature.
