140. ENGL 151/151W: Works of English Literature

Contact:Thomas Frosch
Abstract:Catalog Description: An introduction to the development of English Literature
from the Middle Ages to the twentieth century through a study of selected
poetry, drama, fiction, and nonfictional prose.

This course engages students in reading a selection of great works of poetry,
prose, and drama written by key figures in the British literary tradition from
the 10th to the 20th century, providing them with a perspective on the
emergence, development, and spread of the English language and culture.
Students will consider questions like the following: What makes a literary work
significant or great? How and why do standards of significance and greatness
change? How do literary texts –§speak–• to each other as well as to us? How
did the language of a little European island become a world-wide tongue? By
examining a range of works written by women and men from variety of British
regional, religious, social, ethnic, and political traditions, students learn
that British literature not only changes over time but is also culturally and
generically diverse.

The 151W version of the course combines the study of literature with continued
classroom instruction in clear and effective written expression
