Time and Narrative

Time and Narrative: Serial Novels to "24"
How can a novel of any length attempt to capture a particular span of time and continuous flow of events? How does narrative time contrast with, or parallel, lived experience? We will explore the relationship between narrative form and represented time from the 19th century to the present, beginning with a serialized novel by Dickens, and ending with a few episodes of "24." Additional texts will include: Bronte, Wuthering Heights; Woolf, Mrs. Dalloway; DeLillo, White Noise; Michael Joyce's hypertext novel afternoon; and Ondaatje, Anil's Ghost. 3 hrs. lect.
