Cíle předmětu
This course will engage and provide a comprehensive overview of the texts and contexts of the English Modernists, namely Henry James, Joseph Conrad, George Bernard Shaw, Lytton Strachey, Frederick Rolfe, A. J. A. Symons, Wilfred Owen, Siegfried Sassoon, T. E. Lawrence, W. B. Yeats, Virginia Woolf, E. M. Forster, Forrest Reid, D. H. Lawrence, W. H. Auden, and T. S. Eliot. Special attention will be paid to how various literary and visual forms are employed for biographical, political, social, cultural, and religious ends. This period is unique for its aspirations as much as its accomplishments, for its experimental and avant-garde tendencies, for its conception of the writer as endeavoring to, in Forster’s phrasing, 'only connect'. 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 English Modernism; and be familiar with the key writers and their texts.
