The late twentieth century saw the rise of what has come to be called, for simplicity’s sake, Neo-Victorianism, loosely defining art that responds to or imitates the dominant tropes and trends of Victorian cultural production. This course will examine modern revisions of novels such as Charles Dickens’s Great Expectations in Lloyd Jones’s Mister Pip (2007), in addition to David Lean’s 1946 film of that novel, and Alfonso Cuarón’s 1995 version of the same. Reading will also include short stories from VanderMeer’s Steampunk anthology, Alan Moore’s graphic novel “The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen,” and an examination of the recent revival of Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes within both the American and the British cultural imaginary.
