  • Fiction by Victorian Women: George Eliot, Elizabeth Gaskell... (Online)
    Some of the greatest writers of the Victorian period were women. This course looks at the work of authors such as Charlotte Brontë, Elizabeth Gaskell, and George Eliot, both as representing women’s lives and issues, and as literature in its own right.

    An exploration in literature and social history, drawing on the Barchester novels of Anthony Trollope, letters, diaries and other contemporary accounts to recreate experiences of parish and cathedral city life in nineteenth-century England.
