English Literature


Local flavor

World-famous Southern fiction and drama by Carson McCullers is set in places familiar to CSU literature students: her childhood home on Stark Avenue, "the town" (Columbus), and nearby Ft. Benning. Southern literature buffs can travel to regional sites of interest through our participation in the Southern Literary Festival each year, and to New York City for summer study and travel to McCullers's adult home in Nyack-on-Hudson.
