Description

Though the novel as we know it emerged in the eighteenth century, the era is known for the ways in which it experimented with the form. This class will explore the different forms and approaches the novel took in the eighteenth century and how the flexible format became a means to respond to cultural pressures. The semester will range from amatory, epistolary, satire, gothic, and domestic novels to discuss topics ranging from imperialism, national identity, contracts and credit, and eighteenth-century social practices.
