ENGL 4200 - The Romantic Movement in U.S. Literature 1810–1860


3 cr. 3 hr. Offered every fourth semester.

This course begins by considering similarities between British and American Romanticism, then it explores the movement’s orientations towards nature, the supernatural, race, gender, and the individual’s role in society. Key authors for this course include Emerson, Thoreau, Poe, Melville, Dickinson, and Whitman. While the focus will be on careful readings of selected texts, we occasionally consider how principles of Romanticism appear in the arts of painting, music, and dance. LIT

Prerequisite(s): ENGL 1200  and satisfactory completion of one 3 cr. literature course at the 2000 or 3000 level, or permission of instructor.
