This course is designed to be an introduction to Nineteenth-Century British Literature, sampling significant landmarks in the poetry and prose of the period. The first third of the course is dedicated to major Romantic poets, with attention to cultural and historical context, including especially the British response to the French Revolution. The final two thirds of the course will focus on Victorian literature, considering first the problems of industrialism and the role of women, and later to the religious questions arising from Darwinian evolutionary theory.

Required Texts:
