CLITR 3317 Marriage and Dangerous Liaisons in the Novel

Beginning with Laclos' eighteenth-century masterpiece, Les Liaisons Dangereuses, this course attempts to establish just what are dangerous liaisons in and out of marriage. Students will proceed to read novels by Tolstoi, Stendhal, Flaubert, Lawrence, Bronte, and O'Brien and determine to what degree Laclos' themes and definitions from the eighteenth century have carried forward into more recent literary treatments of love and marriage.
