American Novel Before the Civil War
ENGL 209
Fall 2008
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: AMST 298

This course surveys novels written and published in the United States through the first half of the 19th century. We will attend closely to literary form and will aim to come to conclusions about patterns of development, emphasizing the relationship between these novels and central matters of history and social change. We will think of novelistic themes in relation to the ways writers express them formally and to the ways audiences might have experienced the books in reading.
