In spring semester, Mailer takes Howard Mumford Jones’s “Modern American Literature,” one of two literature classes he takes at Harvard — a drama survey class taken senior year is other. In the summer, he works briefly as an attendant at the Boston State Hospital, formerly called the Lunatic Asylum, and then writes a play based on his experience titled “The Naked and the Dead.”
