This course outline for the study of novels by representative writers of the eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth centuries emphasizes the various novelistic forms. Study objectives include: (1) explanation of how psychological elements motivate characteristics; (2) explanation of how sociological factors influence characters and situations; (3) discrimination between historical and nonhistorical elements; (4) classification of a novel according to one of the following forms: detective, sentimental, novel of manners, regional, picaresque, Gothic, epistolary, and autobiographical. The course rationale is that vicarious experiences will help the student to better understand himself. A list of numerous teaching strategies is supplemented by an extensive bibliography of teacher and student resources: textbooks, supplementary materials, reference materials, professional books, periodicals, and films.
