We will examine various forms of American popular narrative in the 1960s, including fiction, nonfiction, poetry, film, animation, art, and music. Works to be studied include novels by writers such as Vonnegut, Roth, Pynchon, Heller, and Kesey; music by Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs, and other singer-songwriters; and art by Andy Warhol and other “Pop” artists. We will also look at nonfiction bestsellers of the ’60s by Wolfe, Capote, and Thompson and innovations in film and animation (Rocky and Bullwinkle, The Flintstones, The Jetsons, Dr. Strangelove, Bonnie and Clyde, MASH, and Easy Rider).
