Illegitimacy - deception - revenge! Wilkie Collins’ No Name (1862) was his second sensation novel after pioneering the genre with The Woman in White. Sensation novels, named for their tendency to produce strong physical sensations in the reader’s body, were an incredibly popular genre in the mid-nineteenth century. Considered “lowbrow” in their day, the best sensation novels have stood the test of time through their gripping storytelling and fascinating characters. Join this five-week seminar-style, discussion-based class as we stroll through the story of the woman with no name and explore Victorian anxieties and desires. Five Mondays: September 20, 27; October 4, 11, 18, from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. ET
