ENGL BC3177 Victorian Age in Literature: The Novel. 3 points.

This course explores important works from one of the most vibrant periods in the history of the novel. Beginning with Jane Austen, the most significant transitional figure from the preceding period, other authors may include Gaskell, Dickens, C. Brontë, Eliot, Hardy, and James. While attending to form and style, we will focus on the relation of these fictional worlds to the social realities of the time, and on how the novels reflect and challenge Victorian ideas about self and society, education, ambition and social class, femininity and desire, labor and domesticity.
