This term we will be looking at literature in which the protagonist learns some new aspects of him or herself. Some of these are shadow, others are forgotten memories, others may be a reflection on former behavior. They are novels with an individuation theme.

The titles we are working with include:

     Emma by Jane Austen (please read this text before the first class )

     The Power and the Glory by Graham Greene

     Sula by Toni Morrison

     Austerlitz by Georg Sebald

     Atonement by Ian McEwan
