The Modern Novel: an Introduction.
«Novels are in the hands of us all, from the Prime Minister down to the last appointed scullery maid. We have them in our library, out drawing-rooms, our bed-rooms, our kitchens, and in our nursery». As Anthony Trollope wrote in 1870, readers of novels immerse themselves in a world teeming with characters through which they learn to know town and country life, different social landscape and faraway places, and receive an education in religious and political matters. Through a selection of classics spanning the 18th and the 19th centuries, this course is intended to provide synthetic coverage of the central concerns of the realist novel: from the moral dimension to its relation with history, up to the peculiar way of presenting the everyday life of ordinary people in a specific context.
Aa an introductory course it will also scrutinize how the novel contributes to the making of individuals and national identity, thus promoting the ethical value of reading, conceiving and spreading aesthetic rules for the representation of private and public spheres. Lastly, narration, considered an indispensable practice in contemporary communication, will emerge as the final product of the canonical form of the novel.
