ANG2153 British Literature, 1790-1900
Fall 2012


This course is an advanced undergraduate class devoted to British novels published between the years 1816 (year of the publication of Jane Austen’s Emma) and 1895 (year of the publication of H. G. Wells’ The Time Machine). Students will be introduced to an array of theoretical approaches to these texts in order to broaden their perspective on the nineteenth century. Students will also discuss the twentieth-century reception of several texts under consideration in the course with three film adaptations. By engaging with the present popular (mis)appropriations of the past, we will see what this can tell us about that period and our reading of it.
