ENG 423 - English Literature of the Eighteenth Century


This course examines the literature of the “long” eighteenth-century (1660-1792) and recognizes the transatlantic circulation of ideas and literature between America and England in that period. At the same time, it explores the global eighteenth century and the issues which derive from its study. These may include the purpose of satire, the rise of the novel, the importance of the “Orient” in Western thought, the institution of slavery, the status of “pre-romanticism,” and the emergence of the author as cultural hero.
