The course 20th-Century British Women’s Fiction (ENL 4503-U01),
offers a study of the work of four pivotal 20th-century British women novelists from Virginia Woolf to Zadie Smith. It emphasizes the particular artistic and aesthetic concerns of each of these writers, the impact of social context on their works and examines how feminist literary theory points to a variety of fruitful interpretive approaches. The course continues the studies initiated in Spring 2021 in ENL 3261 19th-Century British Women Novelists.
