This course introduces students to British literature from the onset of the Industrial Revolution in the 1780s to the multicultural, high-tech, globalized twenty-first century. The course investigates how Romantic, Victorian, Modern, and Contemporary writers responded to the profound social, psychological, economic, and political upheavals of their times in poems, short stories, novels, plays, and manifestos, which themselves revolutionized human experience. This is a course in reading, appreciation, and critical analysis within an historical framework. 07-01-2020-02-04-2020 Lecture Tuesday, Thursday 10:00AM - 11:15AM, SDU Main Bldg, Room 420
