ENGL 3333 British Modernism (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

In this course, we will study the great works of modernism with an eye toward the ways in which this revolution in the arts became our own tradition. Though we will focus on British modernism in particular, the global character of modernism will necessitate some attention to American and Continental European influences. We will also have the opportunity to compare literary modernism to developments in architecture, film, and painting. Authors to be discussed include Samuel Beckett, Joseph Conrad, H.D., T. S. Eliot, James Joyce, Wyndham Lewis, Ezra Pound, Rebecca West, and Virginia Woolf.
