Expanded Course Description
ENG 391 is the first of a two-part, upper division chronological survey of the American novel from its beginnings in the 19th century to the present. ENG 391 covers the 19th century. No prerequisites are required, but students should be capable of advanced university-level work in literary studies. Although readings focus on a specific period, the course challenges students to locate American fiction within broadly conceived historical, social, and political contexts. As a concentrated survey of major American fiction, ENG 391 satisfies the university's Group Requirement in the Arts and Letters category. The courses on the American novel, ENG 391 and 392, may be taken as a sequence or individually.
