Enlightenment to Modernism: British Literature, 1750-1930
ENGL 208
Fall 2006 not offered

This course is a survey of modern British literature and culture that provides an introduction to the British Enlightenment, Romanticism, the Victorian age, and Modernism. In the first third of the course, we will examine the emergence in the late eighteenth century of two new literary forms: The novel and Romantic poetry. The rest of the term, we will trace the development and transformation of these genres at the hands of Victorian and modernist writers. Throughout, our emphasis will be on the ways in which literary form both responds to and shapes the movements of history.
