ENGL 200 - Major Medieval and Renaissance British Writers


This course surveys selections from major works of three writers foundational to the literature of the British Isles and other literatures in English: the late-medieval poet Geoffrey Chaucer, the Renaissance poet Edmund Spenser, and the 17th century writer John Milton. Study of selections from The Canterbury Tales, The Faerie Queene , and Paradise Lost will highlight the formative role of these writers for later explorations of gender, the religious imagination, politics and ideas of liberty, and the historical emergence of a specifically poetic history. Offered alternate years. (4 Credits)
