The 18th-Century British Novel
ENGL 210
Fall 2010 not offered

This class will introduce students to the texts that have played the most central part in the critical debates surrounding the novel's development in the 18th century. Starting the class with a polished realist novel, Austen's SENSE AND SENSIBILITY, we will try to define what we mean by a "novel" before turning to the ways in which supposedly "natural" forms like character, realism, and plausible plot were constructed in the course of the 18th century.
