Course Info
Neoclassical and Romantic Literature is a lecture-based and discussion-based course that examines English poetical works written throughout the 18th century ( the Neoclassical period) and the early 19th century  (up to 1832, the Romantic period). Students are endowed with the necessary knowledge to compare/contrast the poetry written within these two periods. Specifically, students are invited to read essays on social, political, and literary issues discussed by major figures, such as John Dryden, Alexander Pope, Edmund Burke, Mary Wollstonecraft, Thomas Paine, Joseph Priestley, and William Wordsworth; through this way, they are encouraged to express personal interpretations of specific works, supporting their ideas with historical knowledge. Alexander Pope, Samuel Johnson, Thomas Gray, William Collins, William Blake, William Wordsworth, Samuel T. Coleridge, Lord Byron, Percy B. Shelley, and John Keats stand among the major poets whose works are discussed.
