ENL2002 Romanticism

Units : 1
Faculty or Section : Faculty of Arts
School or Department : School of Humanities and Communication


Pre-requisite: ENL1000 or ENL1001


The final decades of the eighteenth century and the early decades of the nineteenth century were a time not only of radical changes in politics, literature, art, ideas and everyday life, but also a conservative reaction to those changes. This course examines British literature of the period in its social contexts, focusing on the relationships between literary form and ideology in the novel, and the paradoxical claims for romantic poetry as a product of individual genius that would legislate for society in a time of change.
