Engl 200: Going Home

English 200:  Going Home
Professor Ed Uehling 

The idea of “home”—whether as a particular place or group of people (or both)—evolves over time, and 
it is always at the heart of how we understand ourselves.  Our sense of wholeness, accomplishment, and 
success is closely tied to our home.  A frequent theme in great literature involves characters who may 
journey great distances from home but who, literally and figuratively, carry reminders of people and 
place as they attempt to maintain integrity, happiness, peace until they can return again.
