Course Description

This course will investigate the terms "classic" and "romantic" assuming that their employment in the literary history of this period designates certain political and social desires, as well as marking specific texts as "classic" or "romantic." In other words, we will not assume that the terms describe self-evident and clearly identifiable periods in history but rather that they serve both to support and undermine retrospectively defined critical agendas.

Grading Policy

Three papers (3-4 pages): The first essay assignment is mandatory; after the first, you can select which topic you write about for the two remaining essays. You must abide by the deadlines on the question sheets; late papers will not be accepted. You must submit at least one of these two papers by midterm (October 15th).
