We hang mirrors in our rooms to make them seem larger and deeper. Likewise we can hang allusional mirrors on the walls of our fiction to add meaning and sophistication. In this class we’ll explore methods of inserting such literary “mirrors”: they may offer chance glimpses, or present ongoing motifs that continually reflect into our narrative. We may think of Ulysses, but also more recent works like Fates and Furies, Hag-Seed, or Station Eleven. With attention to such examples, we will establish strategies for introducing classical allusions into our fictional realm.
