Course Description:

This course will combine a study of selected works of Modernist fiction with readings in narrative theory from the early twentieth century to the present. Some objectives will be: to study the emergence of narrative theory in the Modernist period; to consider the way the meaning of "Modernism" was produced through later critical and theoretical studies; to examine potential applications of current narrative theory to Modernist fiction; to reexamine Postmodernist constructions of Modernism as Postmodernism's "Other"; to examine potentials for computerized analysis of Modernist texts; to examine the significance, to narratological studies, of feminist and cultural critique.
