The Nineteenth-Century Novel

The Nineteenth-Century Novel
In this course we will examine the development of realism in the major French novels of the nineteenth century. Through the study of representative works such as Balzac's Le Père Goriot, Stendhal's La Chartreuse de Parme, and Flaubert's Madame Bovary, we will analyze the evolution of novelistic techniques as well as the social and historical context in which the authors wrote. Concepts explored include: realism, naturalism, representation, mimesis, narration, style, and feminism. Authors studied may include: Sand, Balzac, Stendhal, Flaubert, and Zola.
