All in the Mind: Literature and Consciousness

Level 6 (15 credits)

The first three decades of the twentieth century saw a revolution in prose fiction. Writers turned away from social and scientific realism and the novel started to explore consciousness as much as society. This module will examine a selection of so called 'stream of consciousness' texts from the early twentieth century, such as Marcel Proust, In Search of Lost Time, Dorothy Richardson, Pilgrimage, and James Joyce, Ulysses, and will consider the legacy of 'stream of consciousness' prose in early twenty-first century fiction.
