History 4631 - Fall 2020

This class addresses one of the great puzzles of literary history: where does the dominant literary genre of modern times, the novel, come from? When did it emerge? Did someone invent this famously unruly genre? How did the novel respond to and shape the history of human needs? This class will seek answers to these questions by studying three representative novels alongside some of the major theoretical and historical attempts to understand how the novel emerged. This class satisfies the Eighteenth Century requirement.
