Two Victorian Anti-heroines
Thursdays, 5:45 - 7:45 pm
February 21 - May 2

We will meet two suspect figures: Becky Sharp, who schemes her way through William Makepeace Thackeray's 1848 "novel without a hero" Vanity Fair; and Gwendolyn Harleth, George Eliot's 1876 meditation in Daniel Deronda on the Victorian bad girl popularized by Thackeray and the Sensation novelists of the 1860s. We will explore these different treatments of women to better understand the vexed categories of gender, sexuality, morality, the writing profession, and publicity in Victorian society. Please read chapters 1-16 of Vanity Fair for the first session. Eleven sessions, $220.

Jennifer Sampson holds a Ph.D. from the University of Chicago and likes to read about Victorian women who might gamble or show a bit of ankle.
