CMPL 306 - Literature and the Scientific Revolution

FC ARHU WINT
4 credits
What is our relationship to the natural world, to knowledge, to imagination, and to discovery? During the early modern era, emerging scientific practices offered a dazzling array of new strategies for discovering truth – challenging, and in turn being challenged by – the imaginative works of Renaissance authors such as Donne, Milton, Sidney, Shakespeare, Marlowe, and Cavendish. We will study the history of science during its ‘revolution,’ through its relationship with poetry, drama, and rhetoric. Pre-1800
