ENG 3105A - Renaissance Brit Lit:1400-1660
This course explores the rich tradition of British Renaissance literature that emerges in the post- Chaucerian era. Poets such as Skelton, Wyatt, and Surrey changed the course of British verse, and prose writers like Roger Ascham and John Lyly began to write important texts in the vernacular. Sonnet sequences by Sidney and Drayton, a play by Christopher Marlowe, and the contributions of the Cavalier and Metaphysical writers are among the highlights. The course is enriched through documentary and film examinations of British culture, religion, and politics that led up to the tumultuous Civil War period of the mid-17th century. Prerequisite: ENG 1001A.
