From Romantics to Recycling: A Survey of British Literature
This course, OFFERED REMOTELY, is an exploration of British literature written over more than 200 years. We will read and discuss poems, plays, essays, and fiction from the periods literary critics have called “Romantic,” “Victorian,” “Modern” and “Postmodern.” We will explore shifts in literary style as well as the historical contexts for these aesthetic movements, including imperial expansion and contraction, the struggle to abolish slavery, the crises of world wars, migration, women’s suffrage, and multiple independence movements of the 20th and 21st centuries.
This course satisfies a Post-1800 literature requirement for English Department majors.
