Module Description:

This module looks at three major twentieth-century novels in detail. All three books explore the problem of interpretation and raise questions about how reality can be understood and represented. In each novel the narrative technique is a crucial tool for undermining the reader’s expectations, both in relation to specific historical events and in relation to the process of textual interpretation itself. The books challenge our desire for clarity and explanation in an era when the category of truth has been profoundly relativized.

Preparatory Reading and Set Texts:

Please buy and read the following three set texts before the autumn term begins:

  1. Thomas Mann, Buddenbrooks. Edition: Fischer Taschenbuch Verlag. ISBN:
  2. Franz Kafka, Das Schloß. Edition: Fischer Taschenbuch Verlag [NOT Suhrkamp]. ISBN:
  3. Ingeborg

** Please note that this module is assessed by both essay and examination. In order to allow students full coverage of the module, the deadline for submission of the essay is the beginning of Term 3. In practice, this will leave no or, at best, limited time to receive feedback on the essay before the examination.
