Teaching Nineteenth-Century Fiction

Andrew Maunder, Jennifer Phegley

Research output: Book/ReportAnthology


This text considers what is learnt in nineteenth-century fiction studies in the context of the ever-evolving ‘canon.’ It conveys how core critical methods can be effectively taught through nineteenth-century fiction and examines the relationship between the literary text and the literary, cultural, and historical contexts around it, and its significance for students. The papers in this text give a chronology of nineteenth-century fiction authors and texts alongside a discussion of issues about text selection and course design. The book also features examples of syllabuses, which adds a brief look at how courses on nineteenth-century literature are organised today in different institutions around the globe.
