Novelist Saul Bellow Accepts Position At Boston University
BOSTON (AP) _ Saul Bellow will teach a class on 20th century fiction at Boston Univeristy next fall, but the Nobel Prize-winning author’s works will not be among those highlighted in the course.
Bellow, 73, who currently teaches at the University of Chicago, has accepted the visiting post offered through the University Professor’s Program, said spokeswoman Susan Tomassetti.
University officials said recently Bellow does not plan to assign his works as required reading for the 15 students who secure spots in his seminar-style course, ″An Idiosyncratic Survey of 19th and 20th Century Fiction.″
The 73-year-old author’s writings have won him the 1976 Nobel Prize for Literature, the Pulitzer Prize and three National Book Awards.
