ENGL 8849 Romantic Texts and Contexts (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

This course “Romantic Texts and Contexts” provides graduate students with an advanced introduction to the scholarly and critical study of poetry published in the British Romantic era (1780-1834). It is appropriate both for students who have had some undergraduate course work in the field and those who are relatively new to British Romanticism. We will read novels and poems in various genres (lyric, narrative, and dramatic) and in relation to various ways of contextualizing literary works. Authors will probably include Wollstonecraft and Austen, Blake, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Byron, Shelley, and Keats, and selected women poets (Smith, Hemans, Robinson).
