ENG 106 Fictions of Women
This course examines the ways in which important British, U.S., Canadian, and Caribbean writers of fiction have depicted the roles, issues, struggles, triumphs, and pleasures of women in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Drawing upon the theoretical and critical work of feminist thinkers, we will explore such issues as work, voice, gender, power, ethnicity, sexuality, and the body in novels and short fiction by such writers as Jane Austen, Charlotte Bronte, George Eliot, Virginia Woolf, Katherine Mansfield, Edith Wharton, Margery Latimer, Zora Neale Hurston, Jean Rhys, Nella Larsen, Tillie Olsen, Meridel Le Seur, Doris Lessing, Paule Marshall, Alice Walker, Margaret Atwood, Angela Carter, Toni Morrison, Louise Erdrich, A. S. Byatt, Sandra Cisneros, Alice Munro, Lorrie Moore, and Jamaica Kincaid. This course is offered in the spring semester.
