Cíle předmětu
The course will consider Milton's 'Paradise Lost' in the context of a concurrent study of the British Civil Wars of the relevant period preceding its publication. Students will be expected to analyse the text and to relate it not only to Milton's poetic and theological or philosophical concerns but also to the politics of the relevant period. Students who complete the course for full credit will also have completed an eight to ten page essay consideringg relevant aspects of the poem and/or its pertinent contextual surround, that is to say the the civil wars and subsequent political developments of the period and the issues contributing to their occurrence, or, should they wish to write a cultural studies oriented essay,aspects of the cultural issues pertinent to the politics of the civil wars. In either case a student completing the the course will have gained knowledge and understanding of the period in question and elements of the poetics of pertaining to it, to a level deemed adequate at this level of study.
Výstupy z učení
The participant completing the course will have been exposed to the basic events and issues in the seventeenth century civil war period and to the presentation and dramatisation of many of these issues in Milton's epic poem, along with twentieth century interpretations of the same. The participant will thus have gained a better insight both into one of the crucially formative eras in British political history and to ways in which political and related issues can be negotiated and interpreted in a classic literary text.
