Course Description

In this course we will consider representative texts from the major nineteenth-century movements-- Romanticism, Realism, Idealism, Naturalism and Decadence-- in terms of their revolutionary form and content, with special attention to the ways in which each of these authors addresses the questions of self and other in society. We will read novels, a play, and prose poetry, as well as critical texts from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
