ENGL 52.13 The Victorians Through Six Children's Novels

British children's novels offer several ways of understanding the Victorians and Edwardians: through ideas about childhood and orphan-hood, literature, scientific discovery and invention, social history, the imagination, and material culture. We will read The Water Babies (1863); Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass (1865); Treasure Island (1883); The Wind in the Willows (1908); Peter Pan (1911); and The Secret Garden (1911). In addition we will read critical materials on Victorian childhood and literature, and examine manuscript materials and early versions of the texts in Special Collections.

Distributive and/or World Culture


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
