ENGL 4618 Seminar: Star-Crossed Lovers and the Novel (Spring: 3 )


Course Description

The tragedy of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliethas continued to haunt literature from its inception to the present day. By reading primarily 19th and 20th C novels, we will seek to understand the various psychological, religious, sexual, social, and political grounds by which these essential human relationships fail. Works may include George Eliot's The Mill on the Floss, Thomas Hardy's Tess of the D'urbervilles, Henry James's The Portrait of a Lady, and Ian McEwan's Atonement.
