ENG-320 Eighteenth Century Novel


GER: TA (Critical, Analytical Interpretation of Texts)
Prerequisite: any first year writing seminar
Novels are so familiar that it is hard to believe that there was ever at time when they did not exist. However, in Shakespeare’s day, there was not yet a novel in the modern sense, while a bit over a century later the novel was the most widely-read of non-religious literary forms. In this course we will explore the changes–in literacy, class structure, international relations, gender norms, print culture, language, and religion–that this new genre reflected. Authors covered may include Behn, Manley, Defoe, Haywood, Swift, Lennox, Fielding, Richardson, Collier, Burney, Goldsmith, Radcliffe, and Austen. 4 credits.
