EN 4830 - Honors Classic to Romantic

While comparing views of Neoclassical and Romantic British literature, e.g., regarding human nature, social and political change, truth, imagination, objectivity and subjectivity, the course focuses on major writers of the respective periods: poets like Dryden and Keats; novelists like Defoe and the Brontës; dramatists like Sheridan and Shelley; literary theorists like Dryden, Pope, Johnson, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Shelley, and Keats. In addition, the course takes up issues and events (e.g., the Bloodless Revolution and the French Revolution) which comprise the intellectual contexts of both periods.

Prerequisite: EN 1110 /EN 1120 , or EN 1140 , or EN 1150 , and honors status or instructor approval.
