ENG 290 - British Literature II: From Romanticism to Modernism


Prerequisites: WTNG 102 
Requirement Fulfillment: Fulfills a course requirement in the English Literature Core Concentration
This course surveys “British” literature from the late 18th century to WWII. It provides a sense of literary history, as well as an understanding of socio-cultural ideologies and historical events that these texts both reflect and project (e.g., an increasingly commercialized literary marketplace, urbanization, the competing ideologies of gender equality and separate spheres, Darwinian science, British imperialism, and the emergence of the post-colonial consciousness). Students gain an overview of the various canonical “periods” and movements that shape the study of British literature (e.g., the rise of the novel, Victorian, and Modern literature). This course carries a heavy reading load in both primary texts and cultural backgrounds. Authors include Goldsmith, Austen, Gaskell, both Eliots, Joyce, Woolf, and Wilde.
