Faced with the social and cultural crisis of the early 20th century many writers broke with the conventions of Victorian literature and created new forms of writing in order to express their cultural experience of this crisis. We will study some of these innovations in poetry, the novel and essay writing in order to explore what constitutes “the modern” in relation to the Victorian heritage.
Participants are expected to have read the following texts before the beginning of the course:
- Sons and Lovers (1913)
Virginia Woolf, Orlando. A Biography (1928).
A reader with the essays and poetry will be available at the beginning of the summer term.
