Description: We will start this course by making one of Jane Austen’s novels our “norm” and then read a survey of the novel’s great variety through the nineteenth, twentieth, and twenty-first centuries. As we read the novels, we will keep asking what we mean by narrative, point of view, the nature of character, the paradigm of character relationships each novel creates, and the meaning of the end.
