EN 222W - The Victorian Illustrated Book


Credits: 4
An exploration of the Victorian illustrated book as it came into being, flourished, and evolved during the long nineteenth century.  This course examines how a genre designed for adults found a home in children’s literature at the end of the nineteenth century and gains new expression in our time through the graphic classics, a prescient form of material culture. Students will learn how to evaluate and interpret an illustrated text by “reading” illustrations to decipher meaning and engaging in creative practice to become author-illustrators.
Note(s): Fulfills expository writing and humanities requirements.
