Stein and Woolf

ENGL 308
Fall 2013 not offered
Crosslisting: FGSS 310, AMST 313
Certificates: Social, Cultural, and Critical Theory

This course is an intensive consideration of the work of two avatars of literary modernism. Virginia Woolf referred to "my so-called novels" and talked about finding another name for what she did; Gertrude Stein called "novels" and "plays" works we would not necessarily recognize as such. Both wrote works of biography and autobiography that were at the same time investigations of these forms. We will consider these writers' formal experimentation and attempts to delineate modern consciousness and space; examine representations of gender, sexuality, and national identity in their work; and read their own critical writing on language and literature.
