In this class we will consider the works of Virginia Woolf (UK, 1882-1941), Janet Frame (NZ, 1924-2004), and Katherine Dunn (US, 1945-) as a scaffolding via which to understand some traditions of fiction in English over the course of the twentieth century. We will consider the density and magic resident in their prose, the resonances amidst their subjects, styles, and themes, and the ways in which their works carry histories forward.
