We know it when we see it, but the novel is a notoriously difficult literary genre to define. In this course we will look at a number of attempts to do so. Our readings for the semester will range from classic accounts of the genre (by, for example, Lukács, Benjamin, Bakhtin, Watt) to more recent critical texts. Along the way we will discuss the novel's formal characteristics, its various historical origins and "rises," its place in European and World literature, and its possible futures.
