Course Description

This course examines the concept of the “sister arts,” the interrelated genres of poetry, painting, and garden design, in the English Enlightenment and Romantic periods. At the end of the course, students can expect to be familiar with important poems, paintings and gardens from the period; to be able to use the terms, definitions, and genres examined to analyze literary and visual culture; and to be more informed and skillful cultural critics. In addition, students will polish their skills in literary writing and research by completing a formal research paper.
