A study of British literature from the restoration of the British monarchy in 1660 to the revolutionary turn of the nineteenth century, emphasizing relationships between literary language and the continuing experience of modern life. Readings will include prose fiction, drama, poetry, periodical essays, and philosophy from the period, supplemented as necessary by late-modern material. Topics may include the eighteenth-century literary history of, e.g., description and other poetic figures; free-market economics, sensibility, and other ethical systems; gender and personal identity; and modern forms of feeling.
