Studies in the Novel
This is a study of the origins and development of the novel as a distinct literary form, examining the aesthetic, philosophical, and social concerns that inform selected works from the eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth centuries. The course focuses on representative American and British novels.
|“||Name me any great novel you’ve ever read that didn’t bore you in part while reading it the first time. A great novel has a consciousness that’s new first. And any time we undergo that, we get bored because we have to withdraw and digest this new consciousness before we can go back to it.||”|
|— Norman Mailer, 2001 interview|
