ENGL 321 - British Literature in the Age of Enlightenment I, 1660-1740

(3 credits)
Prerequisite: ENGL 203 and ENGL 223
This course explores the literary cultures that emerged in the wake of the Restoration of the English monarchy in 1660. Attention to historical context, such as the introduction of women onto the stage and the glamorization of criminal subcultures like pirates and highwaymen, will deepen our understanding of writings by authors such as Aphra Behn, Jonathan Swift, Eliza Haywood and Daniel Defoe.
