Bernard Shaw believed that most women want nothing more than to get married. This course will attempt to prove him wrong. We will examine
female novelists, poets, and social critics who are themselves evidence against Shaw’s dim view of women and who have created literary heroines to
advance the changing roles of women in both the domestic and public spheres. Our reading list will include works from Jane Austen, Anne
Brontë, Virginia Woolf, Barbara Kingsolver, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, and others, and the requirements for the course will include two papers, an
exam, weekly writing assignments, and participation in class discussions.
