Course description

This course surveys British literature from the Anglo-Saxon period to the eighteenth century. Its intention is to provide students with a framework for understanding such period courses in third year as ENGL 3045, 3095, 3146, 3147, 3175, and 3505. This framework is established by studying the major periods of literary history and the development of various genres in changing historical contexts. The course builds on ENGL 1105/1106/1107 by focusing on the close critical analysis of poetry and prose and by emphasizing the critical contexts for interpretation. In addition, ENGL 2006 introduces the research and bibliographic skills necessary for further work in the discipline of English Studies.
