Post-apocalyptic literature has not just joined mainstream literature - it's now considered a part of the high literary canon. Some of the success of post-apocalyptic fiction is rooted in how closely it can seem to resemble real life. In this class, we will not only read and discuss a selection of classic and contemporary post-apocalyptic novels,  but we will also use these novels as a prism to examine history and the world around us
