An introduction to different meanings of water in British literature. We will study a variety of works – poetry, fiction, non-fiction – beginning with the Romantic period but emphasizing the contemporary.

Sites will include the Thames; some of the lesser streams and canals in the city; Grasmere and Easedale Tarn in the Lake District; and the River Dart. Through textual and field research we will try to bring out the many meanings of water in 21st-century London. Field trips required. British, Post-1900.
