ENGL 231: English Literature to 1750

Students in this second-year course study works by a number of major British authors before 1750. The course forms a foundation for the further study of English literature, and is required for an English Major at many universities, including the University of British Columbia. Historical and literary backgrounds are discussed for all of the texts. Of particular interest is the interrelationships between different modes of performance both at the time of the works’ composition and currently.
