Adjusting your schedule? Consider ENGH 333: British Novel of the 18th Century!

The novel has been the most popular of literary genres since at least the nineteenth century, but it is also among the most modern. In English, the modern novel really only emerges in the eighteenth century and fairly quickly displaces the ancient genres of drama and poetry as the most popular literary genre. The “rise of the novel”—its consolidation as a genre of writing and its slow gain in respectability as “serious” literature (without ever entirely shedding the disdain directed toward it as frivolous entertainment)—has been one of the important themes in modern literary history.

In this course, we’ll examine some of kinds of fiction that feed into the novel across the eighteenth century: among others, allegorical narratives and fables, utopian fiction, amatory fiction, gossipy secret histories, picaresque narratives and rogue biographies, Oriental tales, object narratives (featuring non-human protagonists), sentimental fiction, and Gothic narratives. We’ll read a sampling of works from across the century to get a sense of the “ingredients” that went into the development of the novel in its early, inchoate period and that remind us of possibilities and precedents in the novelistic tradition. (Authors in this vein include John Bunyan, Aphra Behn, Delariviere Manley, Eliza Haywood, Daniel Defoe, Jonathan Swift, Samuel Richardson, Henry Fielding, Sarah Fielding, Charlotte Lennox, Oliver Goldsmith, Tobias Smollett, Laurence Sterne, Frances Burney, Maria Edgeworth, William Godwin and numerous others: we’ll read a selection from among them—whatever we can fit into the space available!)

Matthew will be in discussion with Egyptian writer Ahmed Naji about his time spent in a Cairene prison for violating public decency laws in his second novel, "Using Life." Being a prisoner forced Ahmed to examine the role of literature in society; meet the fabled Average Reader and a man named Rhinoceros; and confront his own ambivalence in calling himself a writer.

Professor Hatim El-Hibri's NEW BOOK "Visions of Beirut" is available now from Duke University Press!
https://www.dukeupress.edu/visions-of-beirut

In VISIONS OF BEIRUT Hatim El-Hibri explores how the creation and circulation of images have shaped the urban spaces and cultural imaginaries of Beirut. Drawing on fieldwork and texts ranging from maps, urban plans, and aerial photographs to live television and drone-camera footage, El-Hibri traces how the technologies and media infrastructure that visualize the city are used to consolidate or destabilize regimes of power.
