ENGL 644 - Studies in the Modern British Novel


3 Credit(s)

Description:
This course concerns the development of modern fiction in the first half of the twentieth century. It focuses on literary developments that shaped the novels of the period in relation to their social, political, cultural, and intellectual contexts, both in Britain and abroad. Among the influences affecting this body of fiction are the two World Wars, social changes consequent to industrialization, Britain’s weakening hold over its empire, and the emergence of international modernisms as new modes of expression and inquiry for literature and other arts.
