Courses Required for Literature Majors


EP390 - Version 2014 - British Romanticism

This course will examine the major aesthetic, cultural, and political manifestations of British Romanticism. An age of Revolution and counter-Revolution, the Romantic era was at once the pinnacle of, and intellectual rebellion against, the Enlightenment. It was the high age of imagination and wonder. Once the realm of six solitary male poets, Romanticism has emerged in the last forty years a period vitally influenced by women writers in all genres. The course will examine the intellectual and aesthetic roots of Romantic literature in the 18th century and then fully explore its themes as manifested in the poetry, novels, and political pamphlets of 1789-1832.
