Welcome to ENG 41.2 Modern British Fiction to 1950 at Brooklyn College. This course is a survey of modern fiction by English and Irish writers from the beginning to the middle of the Twentieth Century. We will explore the development of prose fiction as a vehicle for the examination of self and society through representative works by Joseph Conrad, James Joyce, D. H. Lawrence, E. M. Forster, Virginia Woolf, and Aldous Huxley. In particular, we will examine how modernist innovations in narrative were used to explore new ground in ethics, politics, psychology, and sensibility. This blog will be used to discuss questions related to our readings and as a general resource on our topics.
