ENGL 318 - From Don Quixote to Persepolis: History of the Novel

FC ARHU WINT
4 credits
By marking the historical stages by which the novel developed from its beginnings as an ?upstart? genre in the late seventeenth century to its modernist incarnations and post-modernist and post-colonial reconfigurations, this course will demonstrate how a genre develops in response to most prominent developments in literary history. This genre has helped shape modern consciousness: What distinguishes the novel from other literary forms, and why did this genre arise when it did? Under what grounds do novels claim the authority and power to teach, to question, and to accommodate changing definitions of nation, class, family, and personal and political identity? Pre-1800.
