LIT 6681 - Revolutionary Romanticism
This course offers a graduate-level interdisciplinary survey of selected works of British and European Romanticism, studied in their aesthetic, cultural and historical contexts, and emphasizing the revolutionary nature -- artistic, political and social -- of the Romantic achievement. Attention will be given to newly-discovered authors (many of them women) as well as the standard writers of the movement, both in England and on the Continent. In addition to the in-depth literary analysis of Romantic poetry and prose, the class will explore other relevant issues, such as defining Romanticism, tracing its intellectual origins in eighteenth-century European philosophy and aesthetics, and studying its various expressions in the other arts of the period, including painting, music, architecture and landscaping. Pertinent works of literary theory and criticism will also be read. The course, which will be run as a student-centered seminar, will conclude with student presentations of research projects, and the writing of a graduate-level research paper.
