Special Topics: The Representation of Work in Fiction
ENGL 358
Spring 2012 not offered

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 19th and 20th centuries depict work and write about work ourselves.
