Unit Description

This unit is the first part of a chronological survey of the English literary tradition. It begins with the latter part of that tradition, from William Blake and the Romantics through to the beginnings of Modern literature. The course includes the Victorian period. The course of study introduces the students to some of the recognised masters of the language and to the predominant tendencies of various literary periods. The course deepens the students understanding of genre, style and content to which they were introduced in the first year unit. The course introduces notions such as literary influence (including the Bible and ancient Greek and Roman sources) and the relation of the individual to the literary tradition.
