This course will examine how three authors, Edgar Lee
Masters, Thornton Wilder and Dylan Thomas, treat the
themes of life, love and death in their literary/theatrical
works, which focus on residents of small towns in the
American Midwest, New England and Wales, respectively.
The course will consist of mini-lectures, audio and
video clips of theatrical performances of the authors’
works, class members reading from these works and
class discussion. A key question for the class will be
whether, based on their own experiences, life, love and
death play out differently in small towns than elsewhere.
