ENGL 331 - Nineteenth Century British Novel


An advanced course on aspects of novel form developed and possibly perfected in the nineteenth century. Formal achievements in realism, sensationalism, the domestic novel, the adventure romance, the detective tale, the marriage plot, and the gothic will be analyzed in light of the social and political changes they emerged to address: the rise of nationalism, the expansion of empire, the codification of gender ideology, the invention of the modern human being. Novelists may include Jane Austen, Mary Shelley, William Godwin, Charles Dickens, William Makepeace Thackeray, Charlotte and Emily Bronte, Wilkie Collins, Elizabeth Braddon, Elizabeth Gaskell, George Eliot, Anthony Trollope, Bram Stoker, H. Rider Haggard, Robert Louis Stevenson, and Oscar Wilde. Criticism introduced as appropriate. Particular themes vary. Alternate years. Prerequisite(s): one 100-level ENGL course. (4 Credits)
