ENGL6110 - The 18th Century Novel: Theory & Example

Semester 2, 2014  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Nicola Parsons


This unit of study investigates the development and circulation of the novel during the eighteenth century. We will read novels that have since been canonised as well as material normally excluded from the story of the novel's rise, such as whore narratives and the popular genre of it-narratives (stories told from the point-of-view of an object or animal). We will consider this material through a number of theoretical lenses, including those provided by Michael McKeon, Lennard Davis and Catherine Gallagher.
