An advanced study of British and American Romantic literature, theory and philosophy.
This paper examines a selection of key works in British and American literature associated
with Romanticism: William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge's Lyrical Ballads;
Lord Byron's Don Juan; Edgar Allan Poe's short stories; and Herman Melville's Moby-Dick;
or, The Whale.
We will begin by addressing that perplexing question: just what is Romanticism? Over the course of the year we will consider how these various writers created, extended or avoided a Romantic aesthetic in their own works. Recent scholarly articles will help direct our conversations. At the core of the class, however, will be the works themselves. Students with some background in 19th-century literature are especially encouraged to take this paper, but anyone with interest and enthusiasm for the subject is most welcome.
