Professor Martha Black
Since there is no course in the modern novel offered at Ouachita, this special study was designed in order for me to fill some of the gaps in my high school and college reading with books from this category.
I was required to read five novels and write a brief summary or analysis of each one. The five I chose to read were: The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger, The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, Tobacco Road by Erskine Caldwell, Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck, and The Other America by Michael Harrington.
