This course will attempt to survey major texts from the period 1660 to 1850. The instructor has a bias toward philosophy and toward the close reading of poetry, and is not an expert on the period. This may produce enthusiasm in the place of knowledge, or enthusiasm at what knowledge can be produced or pretended to on the run. Attendance will be required and there will be two papers as well as a mid-term and final.
