NOVELS OF LOVE AND WAR

ENG3NOV

2021

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

Love and war have always impelled the arts; they have been the subject of poetry, plays and prose, music and song, dance and the visual arts. In this subject, students study the ways in which love and war have been fictionalised since the early twentieth century in a range of novels on the first world war, the Holocaust, the wars in Vietnam and Iraq, and the unfinished war that is Australian colonialism. Students will study novels by English, American, Hungarian, Iraqi and Australian writers in their broader cultural contexts from the 1920s to the present. The study of the texts' cultural contexts includes a consideration of other art forms: how did filmmakers, painters, poets and musicians respond to the climate of war in the same historical and political periods? Students will also study the significance of aesthetic form and style for the novels' capacities to evoke meaning. This subject addresses the sustainability thinking essential.
