ENGLISH 136B: Big Novels

In this seminar we'll read three conspicuously ambitious nineteenth-century novels: Bleak House (Charles Dickens), The Brothers Karamazov (Fydor Dostoevsky) and Moby Dick (Herman Melville). Why does the nineteenth-century produce these famously big novels? Why tell these particular stories in such extravagant, unprecedented ways? These are famously demanding and rewarding works of art, and the main aim of our seminar will be to closely engage each novel, to read it actively and reflectively, and to plumb its narrative, aesthetic and philosophical complexity.
