Course Syllabus

Abstract

The era of Romanticism and the period that followed, Victorian age, are the powerful milestones on the route to social, religious, ideological change in Britain, which led to the destruction of long-held dogmas and formed a worldview that is still influencing modern thought and behaviour. The English literature course examines how the nineteenth-century British writers and poets dealt with this great shift in consciousness and addressed a broad range of political, social and aesthetic matters of that turbulent era.
