The course will focus on the reading and enjoyment of the dazzling variety of texts which made of the English tradition one of the major cultural streams in the West. At the same time we will explore the implications of these texts in and for political, social, and cultural history more generally. We will give special attention in 2008 to the ongoing rewriting of the heroic, with its shifting models of male and female excellence and to Romance with its artful fables of desire. Readings will range widely from Beowulf to Paradise Lost. Major time will be devoted to Chaucer, Marlowe, Spenser, Shakespeare, Donne, and Milton. The course features lecture three hours a week; discussion groups will meet a fourth hour to discuss the material further and to work out writing assignments for the course. There will be two essays of approximately six pages each, a midterm and a final examination.
