easily my favorite course next semester
I just looked at the required texts for an English course I added for kicks, next semester—British/Irish Fiction Post-1900. I think it's a cool list, but what do I know...I haven't taken the course yet. But there seem to be some interesting choices:
- The Butcher Boy
- The Code of the Woosters
- The Good Soldier
(Ford Madox Ford)
- House of Splendid Isolation
- Lucky Jim
- Mimic Men
- A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man
- The Quiet American
- To the Lighthouse
- Women in Love
I registered for the course because it's being taught by my Vict Lit prof, and he's hilarious. Also, it was a last-minute addition to the schedule and didn't get printed in the catalog, so if not enough people sign up, it'll be cancelled which would be a bummer for people who do
need the credits for something important.
I'm not so sure about the other English course I'm registered for, The American Novel (Revolution to present). I haven't seen a list of texts yet, and the prof was changed to someone that I've heard less-than-stellar things about. Even if the prof sucks, I'm sure it'll be a better class than the three Business courses I'll be taking: Business & Society, Negotiation & Conflict Resolution, Strategic Management.
Go, American Novel, go!
