Joseph Conrad EN 1016: Genre: The Novel [5 ECTS]

This module aims to introduce the novel as a modern literary genre, and to trace its evolution throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. We will explore different aspects of the tradition including romantic, realist and Gothic variations, and consider the way in which theorists and historians of the novel form have assessed its development. Authors covered on this module include Jane Austen, Elizabeth Gaskell, Oscar Wilde, Joseph Conrad and Daphne du Maurier.
