Romantic Period

The course offers a fairly comprehensive introduction to the exquisitely complex literature of the British Romantic Period (1789-1830). The students will be introduced to a broad selection of texts by the most prominent poets, novelists, and thinkers of English Romanticism, as well as their relevant historical, cultural, political and aesthetic milieu. The students will also study the major themes of the period in order to examine and understand the particular concerns of each writer, and to evolve a comparative consideration between such writers and their works to form a more comprehensive outlook of the conflicts and complex interrelations that characterize this richly diversified period.
