Short Course Description

The course presents a survey of English literature from the beginning of the eighteenth century until early twentieth-century modernism, along with the required historical and political context. We will read texts by Swift, Defoe, Pope, Dr. Johnson, Blake, Charlotte Smith, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Byron, Shelley, Keats, Austen, Browning, Tennyson, Rossetti, Yeats, Conrad, Wilde, T.S. Elliot, Joyce and Woolf. We will examine literary periods such as Romanticism, the Victorian period and Modernism, the literary and cultural production that defined them, and the historical developments that shaped and informed them. As such, we will reflect upon the interrelations between text, context and history.
