A survey of the modernist period in British and Irish writing, concentrating on the development of the novel as both an artistic medium and a mechanism of social representation. Students should be prepared to read adventurously and to read a lot. We will attempt about a work per week, making a central exception for Joyce’s Ulysses, which will slow us to about a chapter per day.

Please note that this class will first meet on Wednesday, September 3; discussion sections will not start being held until Friday, September 5.
