ENG 213 - Early British Literature


Surveys the English tradition in literature, beginning with the early Middle Ages and ending with the Restoration. Important themes will include: faith, chivalry, love, marriage, adultery, and heroism. Readings will include selections from Beowulf, The Canterbury Tales, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Julian of Norwich, Margery Kempe and poetry selections from Spenser, Sidney, Shakespeare, Marvell, Wroth, Raleigh, Queen Elizabeth, and Milton. While we will be situating these works in their historical and cultural contexts, emphasis will be on the close reading of these texts. Satisfies the Literary Perspectives General Education requirement.
