SCW syllabus / YU only
The goal of this course is to familiarize students with developments in British literature between 1870 and 1930. We will of course only have time for a small sample of writings from these years, so the syllabus should not be considered exhaustive: major authors left off our reading list were done for reasons of time, not merit. Nevertheless, students should come away from the course with a solid timeline of literary progressions and a familiarity with the characteristics of the various eras we pass through. Besides these macro-level skill sets, students should be able to focus on the micro as well, demonstrating the ability to perform close reading and literary analysis through three essays. The course is divided into three units, Late Victorian, (1870-1900); Edwardian (1900-1914); and Modernist (1914-1930). Students will write short close reading essays for the first two units, and then a final essay for the third. There will be a final exam.
