This course explores the representation of subjectivity and conscious thought in the British novel in the first half of the twentieth century. The literature we will read addresses the challenges brought by modernity to traditional values, social mores, class distinctions, gender roles, and conceptions of nation, propriety and home. We will therefore be considering subjectivity not only as it is formally represented but also in the context of colonial relationships, economic struggle, class conflict, and shifting gender relations. Authors will include Virginia Woolf, Rebecca West, James Joyce, Joseph Conrad, Ford Maddox Ford, D. H. Lawrence, and others.
This course fulfills the genre & theory and period requirements for the English major.
