Lord Byron EN 1021: Romanticism [5 ECTS]

With its complete renegotiation of literary aesthetics to focus on self-expression, Romanticism is perhaps the great cultural mode of modernity, without which all subsequent literature would be inconceivable. This module will examine the major flowering of British Romantic writing from c.1780-1840, taking in its relationship with Enlightenment thinking and culture, political radicalism, women and the novel, and some of the greatest poetry ever written.
