ENG 385 Modern British and Irish Literature

3 Credits

This course examines the works of important British and Irish authors of the first half of the 20th century. Students review the historical, literary, and artistic contexts that brought about the movement called Modernism which had a major influence on all the arts in an increasingly metropolitan world. Authors were influenced by or reacting to a wide range of Victorian concepts and ideas as well as the impact of World War I, resulting in ground-breaking creative approaches to themes, forms, and structure in poetry, fiction, and drama, as seen in the works of authors such as Conrad, Joyce, Lawrence, Yeats, Woolf, and Eliot.
