According to The Concise Oxford Dictionary of Literary Terms, “A literary genre is a recognizable and established category of written work employing such common conventions as will prevent readers or audiences from mistaking it for another kind.” This lecture will look at some of the most important genres in English fiction (e.g. the gothic novel, the Bildungsroman, crime fiction, the Robinsonade, science fiction), delineate their developments and discuss their conventions. You will also be introduced to a variety of novels which either conform to particular genres, combine characteristics of several ones, or challenge and play with genre conventions.
