ENGL3151: British Romantic Literature and Culture

3 CreditsEthical and Civic ResponsibilityLiterature

In British Romantic Literature and Culture, students read poetry and prose written during the Romantic Period (1780-1832). Romantic authors permanently changed the way literature treats numerous subjects: nature, the imagination, revolution, war and politics, the role of the poet, the depiction of common life and language, and the representation of personal experience, to name a few. This was a period of great stylistic innovation, as authors experimented with the use of symbolism and the adaptation of classical mythology and explored medieval/gothic images and themes. Possible authors to be studied in this course include Jane Austen, Anna Letitia Barbauld, William Blake, Lord Byron, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Felicia Hemans, John Keats, Mary Shelley, Percy Shelley, Charlotte Smith, Mary Wollstonecraft, William Wordsworth.
