LITR 206 - English Lit 1800 to Present
Murderers, monsters, lovers and lunatics stalk the pages of British literature since the eighteenth century. This survey starts with the revolutionary ideas of Wordsworth, Coleridge, and other Romantics. The Victorian period that follows reveals surprising contrasts such as Tennyson’s practical analysis of issues and Morris’s artistic rejection of meaning. Finally, the survey shows how modern authors such as Yeats and Pinter build upon or reject the heritage of the past.
