Seminar in Reformation & Humanism

GERMANIC LANGUAGES AND LITERATURES 521

During the early modern period, 1500-1750, prose fiction developed as one of the dominant literary forms. We will read and review several important literary expressions along this evolutionary trajectory that mark the narrative changes leading from late medieval/early modern Prosaromane (Volksb├╝cher) to early forms of the novel. We will explore the relationship of facts and fiction, the influence of magic, demonologies, and travel writings as well as issues of gender construction and their effect on the development of prose narratives.
