ENGL3583The Women Novelists of Britain (1900 to Today) (O)3 ch (3C) [W]
Many genres are dominated, at least initially, by men. However, women are at the heart of almost any history of the novel. This is certainly the case for modern and postmodern British novels, in which women reimagine the rules of both genre and gender; these authors even question the category of "woman" itself. Possible course authors include Virginia Woolf, Stevie Smith, Jean Rhys, Angela Carter, Jeanette Winterson, A.S. Byatt, Sarah Waters, and Zadie Smith.
