Instructors’ Teaching Experience

I have taught The Woman in White once, and while my students seemed fine with it, I will never teach it again simply for length reasons (the Broadview edition runs at about 600 pages). The only way I would consider it again – or any of the long Victorian serial novels – would be if I were to teach it as a true serial novel: have them read longer weekly installments, and discuss it one day a week. That would break up the length of the book. Note that this can be a problem with any of the long Victorian serial novels, such as Lady Audley’s Secret (although Collins’ book is considerably longer yet than Braddon’s). [Joseph Rodriguez,]
