How to Read Like a Victorian
Tuesdays, 5:45 - 7:45 pm
September 24 - November 19

In 1849 and 1850, London readers would have been able to purchase monthly parts of the latest works by rival novelists Charles Dickens and William Makepeace Thackeray. In this seminar we will read David Copperfield and Pendennis serially, in imitation of their first readers' experience. Discussing them side-by-side will enable us to see how these texts respond to each other and will highlight the authors' different methods for revealing their professional and private lives to readers. Nine sessions, $210.

Jennifer Sampson holds a Ph.D. in English from the University of Chicago and sometimes likes to pretend it is 1849.
