The ‘Gothic’ or Medieval Revival gave life to a wide variety of literature in the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. This course will examine a number of novels and narrative poems arising from this movement, with a particular focus on the ways in which authors used the British Middle Ages as a lens to examine issues of social justice and the quality of everyday life in the nineteenth century. Requirements for the course will include a substantial term paper and research presentations.
The seminar requirement for the English major may be satisfied by any ONE of the following: English 100, 150, 150AC, or H195A-B.
