Cíle předmětu
This course will engage the texts and contexts of the English Augustans and Romantics. Special attention will be paid to how various literary and visual forms are employed for biographical, political, social, cultural, and religious ends. These periods are unique for their aspirations as much as for their accomplishments, for their conception of the writer as a strikingly monumental and sometimes prophetic figure—as Percy Bysshe Shelley claims in the last statement of his "Defence of Poetry": “Poets are the unacknowledged legislators of the World.”
Výstupy z učení
Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to discuss the writing of others with sensitivity and appreciation; have an understanding of the contexts of the English Augustans and Romantics; and be familiar with the key writers and their texts.
