This course will focus intensely on the writers Thomas Hardy and Virginia Woolf. We will study Hardy’s novels The Return of the Native, The Mayor of Casterbridge, Tess of the d’Urbervilles, and Jude the Obscure. With Virginia Woolf, we will trace her experiments in modernism, as we read Mrs. Dalloway, To the Lighthouse, A Room of One’s Own, and her autobiography Moments of Being. Hardy and Woolf will be considered in their historical, cultural, literary, and social contexts, including their relationships with other writers in their circles.
