LT 322 - Modern British Novel

This course is a critical study of novels by living British authors, analyzing them in terms of narrative structure, common themes and preoccupations and significant differences. Most of the authors are well known and highly acclaimed, although we will not necessarily be reading their most popular, nor most recent work. Some of the issues raised by these authors are: war (1914 to the present); the Holocaust; alternative sexualities and notions of gender; Englishness, and Post Colonialism. These issues will be considered in relation to the historical and contemporary context of the text.

Note: This course is offered during the regular semester and in the summer. For summer sections, the course schedule is condensed, but the content, learning outcomes, and contact hours are the same. You can find the Modern British Novel summer syllabus here,
