EN 331 - The Wild(e) Nineties


Credits: 3
A course on the literature, arts, and culture of the 1890s in England. Oscar Wilde is the course’s presiding genius (as he was for the decade), but such figures as Arthur Conan Doyle, Olive Schreiner, Aubrey Beardsley, and H.G. Wells will also be discussed. A wide range of genres-from the detective story, the feminist novel, and the fairy tale to poster art, apocalyptic and Gothic fiction, and radical journalism-facilitates this course’s examination of an era’s preoccupations: gender and sexuality, theater and performativity, empire and power, morbidity and degeneration, the city and decadence, socialism and aestheticism.
Prerequisites: Completion of the Introductory Requirement.
