ENGL 4629 Advanced Topic Seminar: Romantic Writing (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

Although many have regarded the British Romantic era as an age of poetry, the writers of the time produced original works in a number of different genres and devised new forms of writing as well. In this course we will read poems of many kinds as well as poetic drama, criticism, satire, short fiction, essays, polemical writing, memoirs, journals and letters. Writers studied will include Blake, Wollstonecraft, Equiano, Barbauld, Robinson, the Wordsworths, Baillie, Coleridge, De Quincey, Byron, the Shelleys, Hemans, Keats, and Landon. We will also read critical essays each week and build towards a final research paper.
