ENGL 242 H: Reading Prose Fiction

Vladimir Nabokov & James Joyce

Meeting Time: 
MW 12:30pm - 2:20pm
SMI 211
Galya Diment

Additional Details:

The course, taught annually, examines the works of Vladimir Nabokov, from his early novels written in Europe to his later
masterpieces, including Lolita, Pnin, Pale Fire, and Ada. By popular demands I will be teaching Nabokov and Joyce this Spring (VN: Stories, Poetry, The Gift, Lolita; JJ: Dubliners, Poetry, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, Ulysses) but the focus will still be more on Nabokov than on Joyce, whose two novels we will not read in full, unlike Nabokov's.
