I too am not a bit tamed . . . . I too am untranslatable,I sound my barbaric yawp over the roofs of the world.

How could I answer the child? . . . . I do not know what it is any more than he.”
Hey my name is Lauren Engbritson and I’m a fourth year at SF State. I’m excited to share my thoughts throughout this semester learning about American lit. I’m originally from Sacramento, CA, and I’ve enjoyed the last few years spent in the city. I was originally a journalism major but after two years I realized English was my passion. I’ve enjoyed the department so far and can’t wait to graduate as an English major in the near future. I hope to take as much as I can from this class and that it will be an interesting semester.
Interestingly enough I come from a very mix-raced family in Sacramento. I’m third generation Chinese, African American, and White. In my opinion I have a very interesting family history and I only wish I knew more about it. Being so diverse, the term “American” has intrigued me all my life. I’m excited to see what this class has to offer about the term “American” and what I can learn to broaden my knowledge on American lit. and history.
