Foiling the Marriage Plot [Lisa Levy]

All Levels | From Gone with the Wind to Gone Girl; from Madame Bovary to Fifty Shades of Grey; and from Helen Fielding’s Bridget Jones’s Diary to Maggie Nelson’s The Argonauts, writers have perpetuated and interrogated the marriage plot. In this class we will look at a wide variety of texts that engage with romantic love and marriage. Through close reading and optional short response essays, we will build our skills as both writers and critics, looking at assumptions around the marriage plot and writing about these old tropes in new and unexpected ways.
