The Novel and Portraiture
ENGL 346
Fall 2006 not offered

Can a person be preserved in the form of a novel? Do you treat a novel as you would a human being? We'll look at novels conceived as portraits, novels about portrait-painting, as well as novels that depict other techniques for making human images---dolls, pets, zombies, etc. We will also pay some attention to conventions for representing human beings in other media, such as caricature, design, and painting.
