ENG 255 - Introduction to British Literary History
This course examines the historical development of British literature, from the Anglo-Saxon invasions that catalyzed the birth of a British national identity and brought Beowulf into the literature of England, through the contentious development of this national identity into a global power, to Britain’s 20th century post-colonial status. By concentrating on representative or “canonical” works as well as those conventionally underrepresented, the course will provide students with the background necessary to understand British literary works in their social, political, and cultural contexts. Meets The University Core Curriculum B2: The Arts category. Prerequisite(s): ENG 101 or equivalent. Meets IN Statewide Core. Term(s) Offered (F=Fall, Sp=Spring, Su=Summer): F, Sp.
