ENG-310 English Renaissance Literature

A survey of English poetry, drama, and prose from 1500 to 1660, considered in their complex relationship to the period's social, economic, political, and religious upheavals; to its nurturing of, and anxiety about, innovation; to its celebration of stable hierarchies and its intensely centrifugal energies; to its iconoclasm and its taste for lush artistic forms; and to its eager embrace of European literary forms and stubborn affection for native traditions.(Literature Seminars) Prerequisites: 200-level Introduction to Literary Studies course (any version)
