LIT 223H - British Literature I


Credit(s): 3

This introduction to British writers and works begins with the ancient heroes and monsters in Beowulf and continues through the Middle Ages with readings from “The Canterbury Tales,” as well as King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. The adventure continues during the Renaissance with “The Tragedy of Dr. Faustus,” then moves on to a variety of works during the Restoration and 18th century: from the stinging satire, “Gulliver’s Travels” to the hilarious comedy “She Stoops to Conquer.” Literature read throughout the course will include a number of poems, essays, plays and stories.
