ENG 360 The Age of Reason: The Long 18th Century

3 Credits

This course surveys English literature from the Renaissance to the beginnings of Romanticism, an age paradoxically characterized by great wit and sentiment.  Drama, poetry, and the birth of the novel are studied through the works of both canonical figures such as Milton, Wycherley, Defoe, and Johnson, and also previously marginalized authors crucial to an understanding of the period such as Cavendish, Behn, Finch, and Montagu.

Prerequisite(s): English Literature Core.
