|Winter Term 2020 Samuel Richardson's Clarissa and the #metoo Eighteenth Century - 1227 - ENG 452
Prerequisites/Notes: Junior standing or ENG 230, or consent of the instructor.
Catalog Description : Clarissa (1748) is one of the longest novels in English, and we're going to read every single beautiful word of it. Its sheer density and complexity mean that, as author Amy Gentry puts it, Richardson's messy #metoo tale "breaks and renews itself over thousands of pages." Required: short writings, short research presentation, critical synthesis.
