Course Description

This is a survey course following the rise of genre and anti-realist fiction throughout the Victorian period, with attention to detective fiction, sensation fiction, the scientific romance, and weird and horror fiction from the fin-de-siècle. The class will consider the ways these genres inflect the dominance of the 19C realist novel as well as shape the development of environmental, social and psychological models of being.
