ENL 444 Origins of the British Novel

3 Credit(s)
This course is an introduction to the study of the British novel meant to teach undergraduate students how the culture of the eighteenth century gave rise to what is now the most popular literary genre in English.  Through a series of readings both canonical and non-canonical, we will explore how authors negotiated and were shaped by the political, economic, and scientific realities of their day.  Not open to students who have received credit for ENG440.
Prerequisites:  A W-I course and at least one English course at the 200-level or above.
