An introduction to issues in English literary history between the 12th and 17th centuries.

What happens to textual representation under the pressure of dramatic historical shifts? How does literary entertainment reflect the differences between “pre-modern” (medieval) and “early modern” (Renaissance)? Authors will include the Gawain-poet, Malory, Spenser, Sidney, Shakespeare, and Donne. Papers and exams. Nature of Text. British, Pre-1700. Enrollment Limit: 30.
