British Modernist Literature|
This course is an introduction to the often radical and formally innovative literature produced during the years 1900-1945. We will read major and minor works from this period including novels, poetry, manifestos, and essays to gain an understanding of the prevailing aesthetics, philosophy, political concerns, and cultural preoccupations of the time. Major themes to be discussed include modernity and degeneration, class, primitivism and empire, gender and feminism, and tradition and history.
This is a writing-intensive course.
