The Victorian age was a period of literary innovation. With the rise of periodicals came the serial novel, which soon became a ubiquitous part of everyday life. The three-volume realist novel emerged with the proliferation of lending libraries, which imposed a censoring effect on literary production. The sensation novel, New Woman novel, and detective serial genres were all born in the Victorian period, and the epic poem, fairy tale, and gothic novel were reinvented in ways that spoke to the scandals and social controversies of the modern age. New genres arose alongside other new technologies and innovations – e.g., the railway, illustrated advertisements, film, mass-market journalism, and photography – which intersected with literary genres in exciting ways. The reading list will include works by Charles Dickens, Alfred Tennyson, Mary Braddon, and Frances Browne. This is a hybrid course. We will meet three hours per week for ten weeks. The other four weeks will be dedicated to conferencing and independent research. This course satisfies the Early British Literature requirement (previous curriculum) or the Early British/American requirement (new curriculum).
