Eighteenth-Century English Novel: Responses and Parodies 

Department of English

Fall Semester, 2012

The first half of the eighteenth century in Britain produced a variety of novels: Daniel Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe (1719) and Moll Flanders (1721), Jonathan Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels (1726), Samuel Richardson’s Pamela (1740), Henry Fielding’s Shamela (1741), Joseph Andrews (1742), and Tom Jones (1749), and John Cleland’s Fanny Hill (1748-49), just to name a few. [Obviously, no women writers have been included in this list, although many critics regard Eliza Haywood (Fantomina, 1725; Anti-Pamela, 1741), among others, as equally important]. This course will trace the development of the novel in this period in terms of responses and parodies as illustrated in some of the classics by Defoe, Swift, Richardson, and Fielding.
