What’s “Victorian” About the Victorian Novel? A Consideration of Four Novels by Four Authors

Thursday, June 24, 5:00pm - 6:00pm

Please join us as Mark J. Schenker of Yale College returns to Wilton Library to give four lectures on a quartet of great novels published during the reign of Queen Victoria (1837-1901). He will discuss these classic books in the order of their publication, focusing on both their style and structure as works of literary art, and the social and intellectual issues they engage. Among the latter are: the status of women: the tensions between optimism and anxiety, and between religion and science; the changing perceptions of children and childhood; and the centrality of the themes of class, sex, criminality and moral earnestness.

Attendees are not expected to read or reread all or even any of the novels, but a familiarity with them will of course make the lectures more meaningful. Here are the novels for each week:

It's simple - all you need is a good book and a clock, watch or phone to help track the amount of time you spend reading. Then update your Wandoo profile with the book's title and minutes read. Every time you complete 180 minutes of reading (3 hours), one ticket will be applied to that week's drawing. If you're our lucky weekly winner, you'll receive a $10 Wilton of Chamber Commerce gift certificate. The more you read, the better your chances of winning.
