ENGL 315 - The Eighteenth-Century British Novel and Print Culture


Semester Offered: Second Semester
Credits (Range): 4 hours
Attribute: 4HU, WR
This course examines eighteenth-century “novels” as works of fiction with distinctive formal properties and as products of print culture – objects that were made, sold, distributed, and read. Six of our meetings will be “labs” in Mudd Special Collections. We will use eighteenth-century editions and other print culture artifacts to study: the making of books, the rise of the author, the growth of a reading public, books as commodities, the roles of booksellers, printers, and publishers.  British, 1700-1900.
Enrollment Limit: 25
Instructor: L. Baudot
