DUTCG201 - Making the Dutch Literary Canon: Major Authors
Value: 30 credits
Tutor: Professor Jane Fenoulhet
Teaching structure: The module consists of four blocks of five weeks each. The first three blocks cover three authors: Willem Frederik Hermans, Hugo Claus and Hella Haasse. We focus on major works, their contexts and critical reception, and the issues they raise. In addition to the primary texts, you are expected to engage in some depth with secondary literature. The fourth block involves theoretical reflection on literature as a social and cultural institution. We pay attention to intellectual and institutional aspects of canon formation, and to questions of interpretation, evaluation, reviewing and literary historiography.
Assessment: one assessed 3-4 000 word essay (30%); and one unseen three-hour written examination (70%).
At the end of the module you will have acquired insight into the work of
major figures in modern Dutch literature; honed your analytical and
interpretive skills on substantial works of fiction and criticism;
developed an understanding of key issues in literary theory; improved
your problem-solving as well as written and oral presentation skills.
