This program will offer a broad survey of British literature from the years 1000 to the present. We will read poetry, novels, nonfiction, and drama from all major time periods. Major authors may include Geoffrey Chaucer, William Shakespeare, Aphra Behn, Jane Austen, Oscar Wilde, T.S. Eliot, and Kazuo Ishiguro. As we read, we will pay attention to how these books and authors make sense of changing linguistic, religious, and political issues.

Students will be expected to write papers, complete quizzes and assignments, and engage in collaborative work. We will also see plays and films.

In the past, this course has been useful for students who need specific requirements to enter teaching programs. Students with these concerns are encouraged to contact the instructor.
