Studies of Victorian Literature





John P. Farrell

The courses covered by this website include:

  • E328: The British Novel from Scott to Hardy
  • E375L: Victorian Literature
  • E370: Victorian Essays and Ideas

As is evident from this list, the web site does not include much in the way of pedagogical materials--paper topics, exam questions, samples of student writing, handouts, syllabi, etc. These materials are available to my students via the University's course management software Blackboard which is ideal for ever-changing postings, e-mail discussions, revised scheduling, and so forth.
