Review 1969 from the perspective of the rich literature created along with the evolutionary music and art worlds. Connect these three worlds with the historical and political events unravelling throughout western society, which continue to impact us. We will study various genres of writing such as the drama, the novel, poetry, non-fiction, and the short story. Step back into 1969 and remember the energy, the community, the uncertainty, and the rich literature that developed as a result.
