Ian McEwan

The 21st Century

We'll be talking some more about the exam, about the different types of "reading" available to us, "dirty" (i.e. historicist) or "clean" (i.e. formalist), and the ways in which they can be related to various different books in the course.

I'll also be speculating, in the last lecture of all, on what new directions the novel is pursuing now, in the first decade of the twenty-first century.
