Module content and teaching

Principal aims

The European Novel module seeks to provide an understanding of the novel form through the comparative study of works of European long fiction from the late 18th to the mid 20th century. It aims to explore key moments in the European history and geography of the form and the range of narrative possibilities and thematic concerns these encompass, focusing in particular on differences of period, culture and nation; on the nature of narrative and the formal techniques and devices of narration; and on the complex issues raised by theories of narrative, comparativism, and the idea of realism.

Principal learning outcomes

By the end of the module, students will have gained a thorough understanding of the novel form.

Timetabled teaching activities
