Course Description

ENG 281
The British Novel in the 20th Century and Beyond

The 20th century presented special problems for writers of fiction. We shall consider these and explore the new techniques that were used to deal with them. The early modern experimenters, Virginia Woolf, James Joyce, E. M. Forster, and D. H. Lawrence, will be carefully considered. We shall also read selected texts by Buchi Emecheta, Doris Lessing, Zadie Smith, and Jeanette Winterson.
Offered every other year beginning 2018-19.
