Description

In this course, we will read a series of particularly intriguing texts, written between 1700 and the present in Britain. These texts—poetry, novels, novellas, satire, and memoir—highlight all kinds of issues that were central to this expansive historical period.  We’ll study major cultural shifts, as we think about politics, art, race, gender, and, most specifically, the idea of the journey.  As we will see in this course, Britons were constantly on the move, travelling around the world, but also exploring the sometimes unsettling landscape of the mind.
