Special Topics: The Representation of Work in Fiction
ENGL 358
Spring 2011
Section: 01  

Among the most common pieces of advice established fiction writers give to new ones is to "write what you know." One thing that people tend to know a great deal about is their jobs, and yet the detailed treatment of work--other than police work--in fiction is unusual. In this course, we study the way that European and American novelists of the nineteenth and twentiety centuries depict work, and write about work ourselves.
