|ENGL2902||Survey of English Literature 1660-1900||3 ch (3C) [W]|
This course examines a wide range of English literature written between 1660 (the Restoration of the Stuart monarchy) and 1900 (just before the death of Queen Victoria). Looking at English literary works in their historical contexts offers fascinating insights into both the texts and their times. Much of the literature studied is in the form of poetry and essays, but the course may also include prose fiction and drama. The course provides a survey of English literary traditions crucial to potential Honours and Major students, but it is also likely to be of interest to all students curious about literary forms and/or socio-historical change.
Prerequisite: a grade of C or better in ENGL 1000 or equivalent.
