ENGH 252 - 19th-centuryBritish Literature: Mapping the Anglo-American Literary Tradition

4 credits
Through an examination of representative texts from nineteenth-century British literature, this course teaches students to think historically about literature through tracing a set of key concepts such as author, reader, theme, form, culture, and intertextuality.  With attention to work from both the Romantic and Victorian periods, the course considers how writers redefined the role of writers, readers, and texts in a world being rapidly transformed by industrialization, technology, science, labor unrest, women’s enfranchisement, imperialism, and expanding literacy.   Equivalent: ENGL 252   CLA-Breadth/Humanities
