ENG 331 - Early 18th Century Literature
Early Eighteenth Century Literature
Prerequisites: ENG 100 and 100 or 200-level Literature Course

This course examines British literature and culture of the period between 1700 and roughly 1740. Sometimes called the "Augustan Age" of English literature, this period is often best remembered for the flourishing of a body of meticulously ordered formal verse built on the model of Greek and Roman antiquity. But the age was neither so orderly nor so placid as historical caricatures have sometimes suggested: it also witnessed ruthless political factionalism, vicious exchanges of savagely witty satire, and the emergence of popular but "impolite" forms of literature, including the novel. Readings include poetry, fiction, drama, and non-fiction prose by authors such as Pope, Swift, Montagu, Addison and Steele, Haywood and Defoe.
