ENGLISH 1: CSN Undergraduate Colloquium (DLCL 1)

This colloquium is intended for undergraduates who are interested in the history and theory of the novel, and who would like to attend the Center for the Study of the Novel's (CSN) annual conference. Before the conference, students will meet with CSN's graduate student staff, to read and discuss a small number of key texts by participating scholars, whose presentations students will then attend. After the conference, the colloquium will meet again, to discuss both the readings and conference papers, and explore their broader implications for the study of the novel. Attendance at both meetings of the colloquium, and at least one panel at the conference, is required for course credit.

ENGLISH 1D: Dickens Book Club

Through the academic year, we will read one Dickens novel, one number a week for 19 weeks, as the Victorians would have done as they read the serialized novel over the course of 19 months. The group gets together once a week for an hour and a half to discuss each number, to look carefully at the pattern that the author is weaving, to guess, as the Victorians would have done, what might be coming next, and to investigate the Victorian world Dickens presents. We look carefully at themes, characters, metaphorical patterns, and scenes that form Dickens' literary world, and spend increasing time evaluating the critique that Dickens levels at Victorian life. The weekly gatherings are casual; the discussion is lively and pointed.

ENGLISH 8SI: Practical Criticism

This course revives a pivotal critical work of the last century, "Practical Criticism" by I.A. Richards, in a seminar that will mirror the conditions of the literary experiment that inspired the book. In the experiment, extremely good and extremely bad poems whose authors range from John Donne and D.H. Lawrence to obscure 20th-century poets were put unsigned before a large and able audience. The comments they wrote at leisure give a stereoscopic view of the poem. We will examine the book, which includes the poems, the scathing anonymous critiques by Richards Cambridge undergraduates, and Richards theory of our psychology of reading.
