|Sr. Sem:Brit Novels 1840s - 34347 - ENGL 471 - 01|
Course Description: A Capstone Course for Senior English Majors. We will explore the historical context, and then read closely three major novels: Vanity Fair by William Makepeace Thackeray [January 1847 – July 1848], Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë [October 1847], and David Copperfield by Charles Dickens [May 1849 – November 1850]. Students will explore and report upon recent essays in analysis and interpretation of these novels and will be encouraged to consider a wide range of analytical approaches for reading them. Short essays through the semester will lead to a longer final paper shaped by the individual writer’s specific interests.
