ENGL 637 - Seminar in British Literature


Credit Hours: 3
Lecture Hours: 3
Lab Hours: 0

The seminar in British literature will focus on an individual writer, a small corpus of works by several different writers, or a theme developed by a series of British writers (e.g., social revolt in modern literature, the social status of the hero in epic, medieval, and modern narrative poetry, the sea in British literature, the private self through the “stream of consciousness,” Medieval literature, English, Renaissance, Neoclassicism, Romanticism, post-modern literature, Spenser, Shaw, Joyce, or Woolf.) The seminar will be an intense and close reading and interpretation of selected texts, rather than a survey of many. The purpose of a seminar is to limit the scope of the material covered in order for students to scrutinize from many different literary perspectives a few key texts in British literature. The format is mainly directed discussion with class members leading the discussion, doing independent research, and exchanging results of their research. This course will vary according to the expertise of the individual instructor and may be repeated for credit under different subtitles.
