Short Course Description

The Nineteenth-Century Novel

This course serves as an introduction to prose fiction from nineteenth-century England. In a survey which begins with Jane Austen and concludes with Henry James, we will develop an understanding of some of the central concerns of nineteenth-century fiction: the marriage plot, the Bildungroman, realism, the sensation novel as well as social issues from the period such as gender roles, urbanization, industrialization, the empire and colonization. We will also pay attention to practices around literary production and consumption: the serial novel, the circulating library, female authorship, the rise in new literacy and perceptions of novel reading.
