ENGL 7758 George Eliot (Fall: 3 )
The intellectual range and psychological depth of Marian Evans, the writer known as George Eliot, was unequalled in the Victorian novel. This course will give us an opportunity to study her development, from the early stories of provincial life to the cosmopolitan vision of her final novel. Reading her major novels along with her essays, letters and contemporary critical texts, we will attempt to define certain patterns of cultural conflict and experience that she explored in changing fictional forms throughout her career. We will consider the ways that biographical material may offer insights into cultural history.
