LIT 245 Literary Periods I (Before 1848): (subtitle)

This course focuses on a major literary period in a Western or non-Western literary tradition before 1848. Students who take this course will learn the basic historical contours of the period of focus, as well as the social, intellectual, and political contexts of the works studied. This course should not focus solely on one author, group, or movement alone, but should consider the period broadly, exposing students to both canonical and non-canonical works and contextualizing the period within the larger historical fabric. Topics may include the Pre-Classical, Classical, Epic, Medieval, Renaissance, Early Modern, Colonial, Enlightenment, or Romantic periods in the corresponding European, American, East Asian, Near Eastern, or South Asian traditions.
