Topic: The Victorian, Then and Now

This class examines classic Victorian fiction alongside contemporary retellings in order to ask what characterizes “the Victorian” and modern interpretations of it. Pairings include Great Expectations, Lloyd Jones’s Mister Pip (set in Papua New Guinea), and Tanika Gupta’s South Asian play; Jane Eyre and Patricia Park’s Korean-American Re Jane; and Sherlock Holmes stories with the Japanese production Miss Sherlock.
