Event description: 

Jesse Rosenthal’s research and teaching interests focus on the Victorian novel, and the theory of the novel more generally. His first book, entitled Good Form: The Ethical Experience of the Victorian Novel (Princeton University Press, 2017), examines the role of intuition in 19th-century understandings of both moral experience and the feeling of novel-reading. He also co-edited (with Adam Grener) a special issue of journal Genre, on “Narrative against Data in the Victorian Novel.”

He is currently working on a book about the development of the idea of tradition, in relation to literary studies and social thought.
