Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

This lecture course aims to provide students with a historical overview and understanding of some of the major trends and developments in English literature from the eighteenth century to the present. Focusing on some of the landmark texts of English poetry, drama, and narrative fiction, we will explore the political, socio-economic, cultural, and intellectual contexts that have shaped literary production through the ages. Students will develop an awareness of the interactions between literature and its historical contexts through a critical discussion of the shifting forms, functions, and aesthetic features of seminal literary texts from Neo-Classicism to Post-Modernism. In addition, they will be introduced to some of the central debates of literary historiography, surrounding concepts of periodisation, canon, genre, and adaptation, as well as its relationship to schools of literary theory.
