ENGL 156 PZ -Legal Fictions: Law and Victorian Literature
Description: The course explores the intimate interconnections between legal culture and British literature of the long 19th
century. We investigate how the literary representations provide a cultural critique of the reach of law into
everyday life. We will combine our reading of literature with a background in key legal principles, concepts,
history, and judicial culture. The course will include legal materials such as case law and Old Bailey transcripts as well as a range of fiction, poetry, plays, and films.
Prerequisite(s): A prior literature course
