From the French Revolution to the birth of the twentieth century, this course will examine a range of literature in prose and poetry. Texts include the novels Frankenstein and The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, and we will read poetry from the Romantic and Victorian periods to determine how writers responded to the dominant concerns of the nineteenth century.
