John Cameron (Section 01)
The course will trace the arc of James’ development as a novelist. It will also concern itself with his writing about the form and conditions of the traditional novel in Europe and America as it approaches the crisis of early modernism at the turn of the twentieth century. Works to be considered will probably include, together with selections from his essays on fiction, The American, The Portrait of a Lady, The Bostonians, The Ambassadors and either The Wings of the Dove or The Golden Bowl. Two class meetings per week.
Limited to 15 students. Spring semester. Professor Cameron.
If Overenrolled: Preference given to senior and junior English majors.
