ENG 265 - The English Novel, from Austen to Woolf (4 Cr.)


This course examines the evolution of the novel in English from the Romantic era through the Victorian to the Modern. We will explore changes in authors’ techniques and concerns, paying particular attention to the evolution of styles of narrative; approaches to psychological characterization; the appearance of other genres within the realist tradition; conventions of fiction, and responses to these conventions; attitudes towards authorship, especially when influenced by gender; and representations of “Englishness”. Readings: Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, Shelley’s Frankenstein, Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre, Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights, Dickens’ Great Expectations, Hardy’s Jude the Obscure, Woolf’s Mrs. Dalloway. For majors, this is a recommended core course in later British literature. Prerequisite: College Writing Proficiency, or WRT 181 /181H, or permission of the instructor. Recommended prior course: ENG 200. (Can count for WEC or WID: See English Major: General Requirements) Spring semester. Wells.
